Intro to Game Coding Camp


About this Camp:
Learn to create an interactive 2D video game using your FAVORITE characters. Choose characters from Pokémon, Nintendo, Minecraft, and even classic characters like Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Sonic, and Mario! In the first class, we will learn to use Scratch, and in the final session, students will be walked through creating a maze game and picking which main character to use. Bring a USB drive to save your games on the last day.
