Junior 2D Game Development

Students in the Junior 2D Game Development workshop learn to apply concepts of math, physics, art, computer science, and music through hands-on activities that culminate in a variety of digital and non-digital games. Students 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.

Students will learn:
  • The game design process
  • Game design mechanics
  • Basic programming techniques
  • Producing art for games
