Junior 2D Game Design

In Junior 2D Game Design, your student will learn that game design is much more than a pastime — it is a challenging and fulfilling field that rewards passion, creativity, and hard work. In this workshop, your student will apply concepts from math, physics, art, and logic as they create games in a variety of genres. Each student will have the opportunity to create a capstone project by choosing from the different game genres presented during the first week.

Students will learn:

  • The game design process
  • Game design mechanics
  • Basic programming techniques
