Students learn to develop complex multi player games that integrate challenges and puzzles, pushing their problem solving skills and dexterity to the max. This is led by our queen game designer Yasmine.

 

Yasmine guides students from laying down their very first blocks to creating complex full stack games! Students develop three unique gaming platforms, and have the opportunity to receive one of our MakeCode gaming pads to give their games a test drive in the physical world!

My child has no experience with Makecode


That is totally fine, we start by introducing the students to the platform and assess students needs and experience to tailor projects to their level of digital literacy and coding.
