In our video game programming class, kids 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. In addition to working individually, they will also work in groups, allowing them to focus on the parts of game design they enjoy the most – game mechanics, graphic design, sounds, programming and more.

 

Some past games that kids have made include a water-bomber that puts out forest fires, choose-your-own-adventure type stories, a maze game and more.  See for yourself some of the games that the young minds in the Winter Session 2016 designed and created – or better yet, play them yourself!

 

At the end of this program, in addition to having their own game, they will understand more about the software building blocks that our world is increasingly made up of. It’s a great start that will lead to digital literacy in many more programming languages.
