Students will learn the basics of coding and create their own game, the game development life cycle, and more. Students will learn how to deconstruct a problem into steps needed to solve it. They will learn about events, conditionals, loops, debugging, procedures, and algorithms. 

In the process of the class, students will also develop their 21st century skills of: 
- Critical Thinking
