A full week of game design and coding! We’ll start by exploring game mechanics with Gamestar Mechanic, an award-winning design platform for kids endorsed by Common Sense Media.

Then we’ll explore and construct a number of typical game paradigms in Scratch, including mazes, side scrollers, and platformers. Students will replicate their own versions of classic games like Breakout, Pong, Crossy Road, Asteroids, and more.

Finally, we’ll build some text-based games in Python, like Hangman and Rock/Scissors/Paper, and GUI games with PyGame.
