Exploring Game Design

Games are fun to play, but they’re even more fun to make! In Exploring Game Design, we have created a fun and supportive environment for your child to discover what it takes to create tabletop games and video games. They will discover how game designers use math, science, art, and sound to create engaging player experiences. At the end of the week, your child will take home a board game and a video game of their own creation!

Your child will explore:

  • The game creation process
  • Fundamentals of logic and problem solving
  • How designers use game mechanics to create fun and challenging games


This course is open to students entering Grades 1 through 3.


During the summer, Exploring Game Design is held at Overlake Christian Church (9900 Willows Rd, Redmond, WA 98052).

DigiPen's ProjectFUN offers workshops, camps and college prep courses for kids and teens. Technology courses are held in Redmond, WA (near Seattle and Bellevue), and online.
