Game Development

Game Development COurse for Kids


This computer game development course will get your kids away from the front of the screen and on the back end developing and coding their own games! This course focuses on learning the basics of HTML, CSS and Java Script, or Scratch- depending on the age group – to build some fun and popular games! By the end of this 10 week programme, students will gain the knowledge to create their own games in the future and leave with a fully functioning game that they can showcase on our show day.
