What you'll learn in this kids technology class:

Go from concept to the completion of a fully functional 2D arcade-style game using Flowlab, one of the premier 2D game development platforms for game design enthusiasts. Learn how to make classic/retro games of your own creation similar to Mario Bros, Space Invaders, Frogger and much more.

Learn logical skills used in the tech industry including variables, controls, and functions. Students will have a finished game by the end of the camp, and be able to share their games to iOS, Android, and Windows platforms for friends to play. Students use a "wiring" oriented coding language inherent to Flowlab, making it easy for new coders to create games fast!

Coding 101 is recommended, but not required.

Drop-off/Pick-up instructions as well as all other camp details will be sent to you during the week prior to the start of camp.

Students may opt to bring their own laptop computer; however, the school does provide computers for each student.
