Combine fun and useful with game development! With the help of our unique educational platform, your kids will be introduced to programming in an easily digestible manner, while learning about game design.
We believe that anyone can learn to code!
Do you feel like your kid is ready to take the next step on the path to their successful future? With the help of our dedicated trainers, kids will go from visual to written code, enabling them to program complex projects, just like real developers.
During this optional module, your child will learn how to design and create better and more enjoyable games easily while using block-based visual coding. While applying the previously acquired programming knowledge and skills, your child will be introduced to gaming theories, specific game types and mechanisms.
Your child will work on various projects while mastering their visual coding skills. After having completed the course, kids can continue their journey on the path to professional coding and game design through increasingly challenging modules. The course is also useful for acquiring life skills besides coding, such as algorithmic and analytical thinking.
What will your child learn:
Practice previously acquired visual programming knowledge
Deepen algorithmic thinking and analytical skills
Get an insight into the different gameplay mechanisms, dynamics and applying these in their own games
Learn the difference between graphics and mechanics and understand how several aspects could affect gameplay
Learn about different game- and gamer types
