Digital Game Development: Grades 3 - 5

Course Description

Create video games using one of the best software packages available on the market. No programming or coding is needed to create these full-blown games complete with multiple levels, lives, score boards and more. Just simply drag, drop and click your way to a professional game that can be shared with family, friends and even online communities.

Investigate concepts in designing and creating video games. Using Multimedia Fusion, a world leading software program, students will start with a simple game and work their way up to more complicated designs. Our unique approach introduces the concepts of logic, events and properties while illustrating the art of pixel work to create complete, professional-looking games that they can play at home or online.

A flash-drive is required to take projects home.
