#ThrowbackThursday – ‘Coaster Cities’ Creative Computing Show 2013

This Thursday we look all the way back to our Creative Computing Exhibition of 2013.  In the Creative Computing module, year 4 students create an interactive exhibition that utilises their skills in storytelling, design and technology to create innovative interactive works that  engage the public.  In this film they discuss the ideas behind their exhibits.

We hold the show every December – look our for details nearer the time if you fancy experiencing it for yourself.

#ThrowbackThursday – Jupiter Artland in Minecraft 2016

We can’t believe it’s more than two years since Dr. Tom Flint and Aga Banach (then a fourth year student)  ran this project with our friends at Jupiter Artland, a contemporary sculpture park near Edinburgh.

Jupiter Artland’s mission is to get Every Child in Scotland involved with their collection, so Aga and Tom set about recreating the whole park in Minecraft.  They then worked with a group of school children to  create a story based mixed reality game.   This has provided a new and exciting experience for those who can visit the park and also allowed children who can’t visit the park to experience it virtually.   As Jupiter Artland continually expand their collection we’ve tried to keep it up to date with the aim of letting even more people experience the Minecraft world.

There’s loads more information on the project at Jupiter Artland’s site here -https://www.jupiterartland.org/learning/minecraft
