“Let’s Play the Arcade Machines” showcases games made by children in schools in the Wester Hailes area of Edinburgh. The project aims to expose the children to a constructionist style of learning; supporting them to create and remix games about their local area using the Scratch programming environment, whilst encouraging them to engage with the idea that further study of computing could lead them to interesting and fulfilling careers.
