Virtual STEAM Adventures- Xtreme Sports challenge- design an NBA arena


Get into the game, create your very own NBA arena, and test your skill! Powered by Steam and your infinite imagination! 

The fun starts with a materials scavenger hunt for participants to do in advance of the class to gather the household items they will need to complete their arena. Participants will be instructed through the design process and be inspired to build a mini arena complete with basketball launchers! Throughout the class, participants will be encouraged to share their designs, ideas, and solutions in a fun collaborative way.
