The Bronx Museum of the Arts is looking for a Teacher's Assistant with proficient Scratch programming skills and some teaching experience to work with 7th graders as part of our in-school partnership with a local Middle School in the Bronx.
In this particular partnership, 7th graders learn basic gaming concepts while exploring contemporary art. We will be learning game mechanics by creating digital games with Scratch.
As a group we will look at social interventions as catalyst for change through art, design, activism and interactive storytelling. We will introduce game design (both digital and physical games) as a way to tell a story and challenge users. The TA will work with our lead instructor, supporting students as they create their games.
