GAME DESIGN & CODING
HOMESCHOOL KIDS (AGES 7–12)
Every great game includes well-crafted gameplay and an immersive virtual world. In this interactive program, students will learn and test these fundamental concepts of Game Design and Development using a sandboxed scripting language and drag-and-drop action sequences. Students will hone basic programming skills, acquire scripting techniques that can be transferred to other programming languages, and ultimately deliver an imaginative, playable, and multidimensional game that can be shared with family and friends.
