Hello everyone! We're the MI-Tech team and we have been working over the past several weeks to create the game TechTrek? for you.

This blog that we're writing here is our way to talk to you and tell you about how the project is going and what we are working on each week. We have four team members working on the project (Julius, Michael, Rebecca, and Erin) and we can't wait to see what you all make of our game. Just click on our names to see a little bit about that team member.

As we mentioned, we've working on this game TechTrek?, but so far we've done very little coding. A lot of planning has to go into the game before we can even begin working on it. That would be like trying to bake a seven layer cake without using a pan to form each layer. We might be able to make the cake, but it will take a long time and it will look like a mess. To make sure our cake is top notch, we've spent the last several weeks designing how the game will work, trying ideas out, and then changing our design.

By this point, we've designed the majority of what our game will look like and act like. Now we want to make sure that our game is easy to learn, so we are going to test our design by having middle school students try to play our game. Of course, our game is not completed yet, so the student's cannot actually play our game. Instead, we have drawings of what the screen will look like at each stage in the game.

So this Friday we will test out our ideas with the help of a several middle school students just like you!
