Suggested companion/prerequisite class : Introduction to Video Game Design

This class reinforces the game design skills our students build in our Introduction to Video Game Design class, but it can also act as its own starting point. In this class, your child will learn basic video game coding concepts by making different types of games. Racing game. Platform games. Launching games. And that’s just SCRATCHing the surface! Students will use Scratch by MIT to create and run their games. The lessons and activities used in our Create with Code classes were developed by Google for their CS First program.
