Are you interested in Game Design and making your ideas come to life?  If so, this class is for you!

Starting with a blank screen, students begin with a single frame where they place objects, scenery, a scoreboard, and number of lives.  They then use the events editor to program how objects behave in this environment.  Games and Apps are then expanded to multiple frames and levels, resulting in a complete multi-level arcade games/apps.  Multi-level decision-making teaches students to consider the game as a whole, beyond just a single frame, and encourages vision and planning. Our students improve their thinking skills and utilize their creativity all while becoming game designers!

*If your child creates an App for the Android™, you can upload the app to your Android™ during the last class at pick up.
