Take Coding to the Next Level 

If your child is already an experienced coder and wants to progress to the next level, this is the online video game class for them. They will learn the power of object-oriented programming (OOP) and apply these skills to create an impressive collection of interactive 2D game projects!  In fact, by the end of the week your child will be a more complete all-round coder with the support of our online game design tutors.

About this course

Our online video game classes start with a quick introduction to core programming constructs including object-orientation programming. This is where segments of code are written as blueprints and used repeatedly, meaning any updates will only need to be edited at the blueprint level.  It's a methodology that creates efficient code and is used throughout the industry.

Throughout the virtual video game design lessons, kids learn advanced coding and mathematical concepts, from code that can react to keyboard presses and mouse inputs, through to reactive physics systems and much, much more.

In addition to coding, your child will also learn about game life cycles, user interaction and installation – culminating in an awesome series of retro 2D games.
