About this event

Thursday 8 July 9:00am - 3:00pm and
Friday 9 July 2021 9:00am - 3:00pm

Put your gaming experience and imagination into action, ending up with an original creation that you can take home, play and show to family and friends. This is a class for all abilities and ages. The fundamentals covered in Video Game Design are a great first step into the world of coding. Students are introduced to object-oriented programming, and a behaviour-based logic system – applying behaviours and attributions, testing, debugging and fine-tuning products – that comprises a core component of computer science and is familiar to any programmer. Our small group sizes with close guidance from tutors mean that students can move at the pace that best suits them while developing their games. This is a rich course and one of our most popular, and many kids take it more than once to take their skills even further.

Students are to bring their water bottle and nut free snacks/lunch!

Recommended for students in School Years 5 - 8.

We politely ask parents and carers to drop kids off 5 minutes before the workshop start time and return to pick up at the finish time. Thank you kindly.
