As part of our Code a Game Workshop, we will host your child's project online for friends and family to play!
In this workshop, we will learn to code by creating a game similar to the Android and IOS hit game, BLOONS TD.
In the game, players attempt to prevent balloons from reaching the end of a set course by placing towers along it; units which can pop the balloons in a variety of ways. Money is gained by popping balloons, and can be spent on extra towers or upgrades for existing ones.
Students will learn about events & actions, layouts, layers,explore objects and behaviours and work with variables as well.
We also conduct interactive group activities which demonstrate computer science concepts for beginner and eight hour workshops. This will be an unplugged activity (without computers) where we introduce your child to computational thinking through concepts such as binary numbers and data compression, separated from the distractions and technical details of having to use computers.
We end the workshop with a showcase where the children get to show off the game they made!
At iTrain Kids, we believe in quality of education which is why our half day workshops are capped at 12 students, and we ensure that at a minimum there is 1 trainer for every 6 students.
Anyone can learn to code with our workshop and no prior experience is required.
