Video Game Programming 2

Grades 3-5

This class requires solid reading and math and the ability to focus for an hour, except for a short break.

Does your kid dream of writing his or her own video games? We’ve found a great way to get started: Scratch, the super-simple drag-and-drop multimedia programming language designed by MIT‘s Lifelong Kindergarten project.

Video Game Programming 2, with new, more challenging projects! Video Game Programming 1 is a prerequisite for Video Game Programming 2.   This class is an advanced version of part 1 with new animations/interactive art/games that we will develop together.
