Exploring Game Development

Games are fun to play, but they're even more fun to make! In this course, students discover what it takes to create both tabletop games and video games, including how game developers use math, science, art, and sound to create engaging player experiences. Students will learn the game development process, fundamentals of programming, digital art, and sound design, and foundational game mechanics.


This course is open to students in Grades K through 3. There are no academic prerequisites for this course.
