Description

Join us for our Game Of the Month class. This month we will be using the Stencyl program for students to make their own platform game similar to Super Mario Brothers. Focus will be on creativity and level design as students have to build their own levels. After our harder Fight! game class this will lean more heavily on the creative side of students as they get to branch off and make their own game leaning less on the programing side of things and more on the creative side of game making. This is a perfect class for those who just took the Fight! class in May as the concepts and ideas used in Stencyl were touched on in that class. Now is the time for the students to shine! We are provided the fundamentals and graphics but the students get to determine enemies, level layout, player, etc.

Our Game Of The Month class teaches students ages 8-18 how to make a different game each month using the Snap! block programming language. No prior programming experience is necessary but basic computer skills such as how to use a mouse and drag and dropping are required. This is a great way for students to learn some of the basics on how to make video games by recreating some video game classics.

Class is three weeks long once a week for an hour each week. The signup is for the the whole three weeks. Each student will be working on their own computer with a max class size of 8 students each student gets personal attention from our instructors.

During each one of our Game Of The Month classes students will not only learn the basics of what is involved in making a game but also the basics of computer programing including if statements, while loops, functions, variables, etc.
