Video Game Programming Camp

 

Get your game on, and learn to code video games! You’ll build your own story, design you own game mechanics, and bring your very own characters to life.

 

Participants will use Scratch software to create their own playable games. This software, developed by MIT, encourages creative and logical thinking and teaches real programming concepts. Some past games that kids have made include a water-bomber that puts out forest fires, choose-your-own-adventure type stories, maze games, games themed from popular kids movies, and more.

 

At the end of this program, in addition to having their own game, participants will understand more about the software building blocks that our world is increasingly made up of – building their digital literacy and setting solid foundations for learning advanced programming languages.

 

What will they learn?

  • Game Mechanics
  • Story Building
  • Character Design
  • Graphic Design
  • Block-based Programming / Coding
