Creating a video game opens up a whole new world of creativity and pushes kids to explore different scenarios using key 21st century skills. In this exciting camp run by Maker Kids, girls will learn how to code and develop their own video game using Scratch, a popular introductory programming language made by MIT that uses building blocks of code. At the end of this program, the girls will understand how games work, important concepts shared by all games, and will have been introduced to many core programming concepts. Participants will also make a real app using Stencyl, which uses block-based coding and provides the foundation for other programming languages like Python Java, and C. They will leave with broad comprehension of logic and design. This class will provide an opportunity to experiment, share and collaborate in an open-format classroom.
