Two students of the Bright OS Education program bested 10 other teams at the recently concluded Startup Weekend. Fiona Brenan and Semira Lacet-Brown were able to develop a revolutionary game that teaches the kids of today how to code. The Young Entrepreneurs’ game, which they named Generation Code, can change the way technology is taught in school nowadays.
Bright OS Education Students Taking Over the World
The students of the Bright OS Education program, together with the other members of their team, were able to gain the respect of the panel of Judges at the University of Washington in May of 2014. The two Young Entrepreneurs clinched the grand prize of the Startup Weekend, which was a 54-hour long event where the top honchos in engineering, design, development, architecture and entrepreneurship converged in order to pitch their latest projects, create ground-breaking technology and form camaraderie among potential collaborators. At the end of the event, the teams presented their products in front of the judges where it was carefully evaluated and analyzed.
Lacet-Brown has been a student of the Bright OS Education program for quite some time, and she has been learning about coding all along the way. She reiterated the fact that she had considerable difficulties in finding an instrument that suited her skill and aptitude as there were no coding games available for middle school children.
The combination of Lacet-Brown and Brenan is a match made in heaven. With Lacet-Brown’s expertise in coding and Brenan’s specialty in design, they were able to concoct a PC game that is able to teach other children how to code. The PC amusement has different obstacles and levels. One of the characters inside the game, Teacher Gram, will appear once in a while to clarify and educate the gamers about a lesson that is associated with programming. Players will also encounter the "Code Monster," where they are required to apply the things they’ve learned about programming in order to defeat the creature and move into a higher level.
The “Code Monster” game will suit the ability and skill of children ages 9-12 years old. The two students of the Bright OS Education program have a plan to team up with Code.org in order to allow their creation to reach an even wider audience. Semira and Fiona couldn’t hide their joy and excitement as different members of the press interviewed them. They even had an article on Geek Wire! Prior to the official opening of the Startup Weekend Event, the two Young Entrepreneurs had already formed an organization that is comprised of six other members who belong in the same age bracket. They said that they are all planning to create games for secondary and middle schools.
