Ages: 10-13 (must turn 10 by 12/31/20)

Prerequisite: Python 2 

Turn up the fire of learning one more level to Python 3! Go beyond the basics of game design in our Python 2 class and into arcade game development. New projects that build upon coding concepts each day, students deepen their understanding of loops, conditionals, functions and lists as well as how to organize the code in their games. We’ll make games like Brick Breaker, Flappy Bird and more. Along the way, students gain a deeper understanding of gravity and game physics. Our instructors support and coach students via a daily virtual classroom as they try, fail, and try again to achieve the result they want. Fee includes 1 year subscription to codesters.com
