Program your virtual pet!

Join us at Coding a Story for an exciting event where kids aged 7 to 12 can bring their virtual pet dreams to life! In “Program Your Virtual Pet,” participants will have the opportunity to create their own digital companions using microcontrollers, with features inspired by classic virtual pets like Tamagotchi.

During this interactive event, young coders will learn the basics of programming as they design and customize their virtual pets. Using microcontrollers and coding languages, kids will program their pets to exhibit behaviors such as hunger, tiredness, and happiness.

Key features of the event include:

1. **Creative Pet Customization:** Kids will unleash their creativity as they design and personalize their virtual pets, choosing unique appearances and characteristics to reflect their personalities.

2. **Programming Challenges:** Participants will engage in hands-on coding activities to program their pets’ behaviors, including feeding, sleeping, and playing. Through guided instruction and experimentation, kids will develop essential coding skills while having fun.

3. **Interactive Play:** Once their virtual pets are programmed, kids can interact with them in real-time, observing how their pets respond to various stimuli and environments. They’ll have the chance to nurture and care for their pets, just like real animals.

4. **Take-Home Option:** At the end of the event, kids will have the option to take their virtual pets home with them, allowing them to continue caring for and playing with their creations. Alternatively, kids can choose to leave their pets with us to share with future participants.

Whether you’re a budding coder or a pet lover, “Program Your Virtual Pet” offers a unique blend of technology and creativity that’s sure to spark imagination and excitement. Don’t miss this opportunity to bring your virtual pet dreams to life at Coding a Story!

The event is bilingual: English and German.
