Explore the art of game design, as you plan, code, build, and create your very own platform style video game using Scratch! Think Mario Brothers, Sonic, and Kirby games. This class combines critical thinking + fundamental math skills with creativity, storytelling, and art to get the gears really going!

We will discuss various video game worlds, and stylistic visuals, as well as how storytelling works in video games to create a very unique world. Kids will design and build characters, levels, scenery, and plan a game structure and story of their own.

Students will use scratch to create their own sprites, platform levels, and backgrounds. They will use scratch’s node based programming interface as an introduction to coding to bring their game to life.

Required software/device: A computer (cannot be chromebook) is required as well as a premium Roblox account ($4/month) is necessary during the course
