Worried your son or daughter will get bored, waste time, or won’t have anything fun to work on this summer? Why not have them collaborate and compete with other clever creative peers to produce animations and games instead of just passively consuming them?

This class is taught in English.
Depending on each student’s strengths (each student may have a different role within their team) Students will further develop their skills in - creative problem solving - rapid-prototyping - basic programming in Python - visual storytelling - project management - teamwork and communication - how to handle the pressure of a deadline.
Students will be provided tutorials to follow at the end of class, but they may need additional time outside of class to complete them. I spend the time in class to get them excited to the point that they want to do the work.
Students will need a desktop computer and basic typing skills to develop their game. Websites: Students will use - miro.com for collaborative whiteboarding - If students join the club they will use github.com for versioning They may use the atom or jEdit text editors to edit their code. Those who like to draw may also need a digital drawing app or pixel art app of their choice. FOR STUDENT WHO DO NOT TYPE PROPERLY I have a strong recommendation for those interested in creative writing, programming, or designing games. Spend 15 minutes everyday on typingclub.com for a month or two and save a lifetime of headache.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
