Class Experience

Building off their experience creating an adventure, young coders are now challenged to create a custom platform game of their own design. Students explore a variety of classic platformers, like Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong, before learning how to create a platformer of their own. Instructors will teach several advanced game components, such as keeping score, adding timers, and leveling up. Students will also learn how to make their sprites jump, and interact with objects and other sprites. This class is the first step towards creating more advanced, multi-level games!

Loved:

My daughter loves every part of camp. She loves how much time she gets to work on her story and her coding. She also enjoys the down time of games/crafts and lunchtime events.

Improvements:

Everything seems to be really well structured, planned and executed.

Loved:

My daughter loved the experience of coding. She felt that the counselors were patient and supportive of her as she learned.

Improvements:

I don't think the kids got much time outside during the day, and a little exercise/movement/outside time would have been good.
