Afternoon sessions - 13:00-17:00 Computer Programming
Over the course of 5 half-day sessions your child will learn what it takes to build their own video game worlds. They will design and build their own games from start to finish by connecting Lego-like code blocks. Kids get to build 2D game worlds, design animated heroes and villains, program game controls and motion, add music, and program game logic. At the end of the week they will be able to show off their own original games and play them with friends and family. No prior programming experience required.
