Service Description

From a young age, kids across the world are immersed in video games, and although playing games is often an outlet for entertainment, creating games requires logical skills, creative thinking and imagination. The skills acquired in game design can be applied across science, mathematics, visual design, information and many more fields. As a beginner course, the class will cover the fundamentals of game design and the basics of coding logic. The class will use the popular free program, Scratch, to allow students to create new ideas and practice simple coding in a video game concept. Scratch, unlike other game development environments, does not require any programming and uses drag-and-drop coding logic to create a diverse range of games. This course teaches the students how to use the program, and will include the opportunity for them to explore and develop their own ideas. Students will explore animations, sprite creating and simple interaction in game design. IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to ensure that we place all students in the correct class of the appropriate level, we require all students to complete the following quiz. Only once you have received an email back from the Intelligent Futures team should you register your student in the class.
