About This Course
In game design, students design and create games. They learn computer programming skills, problem solving, and critical thinking. Students use their creativity and imagination to create their own unique and original games.
In robotics, students build and program robots. They use the engineering design process to build their robots and they program them to move, pick up cans, avoid obstacles, follow a line, go through a maze, use sensors, etc.
Our delivery approach is student-centered and progressive. New students start with the basics and returning/experienced students learn advanced skills. Students are assigned projects to work on based on their grade level, interest, and prior experience.
