Games are not only fun to play, they're fun to build and building games is a great way to learn to code. Kids build several different kinds of games including paddle games, maze games, platformers, and more. By the end, they'll be able to design, build, and play their own games!
Mobile apps are everywhere and are used in just about every aspect of our lives. Kids learn coding concepts while building mobile applications that can run on iPhones and Android phones alike! When they're done, kids can design and build their own mobile apps.
Our lessons are taught with block-based drag-and-drop coding languages. We do this because it is approachable, intuitive, and visual. Kids learn coding concepts and skills as well as techniques for designing and building their own games and mobile apps. By the time they’re done, kids aren’t just playing games and using apps – they’re inventing them! Each lesson contains the following:
