If a class is full and your child is interested, please email [email protected] to be put on the waiting list. If you change your mind about a class, please cancel at least one week in advance.

Calling all game lovers out there. It’s fun to play video games, it's even more fun to design your own game! In this class you won’t just learn to program the games, you will also have fun playing them. Students will not only learn the characteristics of a good game like speed, obstacles, scoring, visual appeal and sound effects, they will also learn the basics of coding like variables, if then statements, logic, loops etc. To add to this students will learn to create cool characters (sprites) for their game and will also learn to build the backdrop for the games they create. We provide touch screen laptops to each student for this class. Students are not paired up for this class so coders can have total control over their creations.
