What is the Game Programming Bootcamp?

The Game Programming Bootcamp is where children learn to code by creating computer games. This bootcamp is specially designed to introduce beginners to the fundamentals of programming in an entertaining environment. In this manner, students are able to experience and appreciate the relevance of coding by playing the games that they created themselves!

There are two levels in the Game Programming Bootcamp:

  1. Apprentice Bootcamp
    This bootcamp is for beginners. Little or no experience in programming is required of the student.

  2. Explorer Bootcamp
    This bootcamp is for experienced students and graduates of the Apprentice Bootcamp. It takes the student to the next level of programming by having them code finer algorithms in their games with the same, if not more, amount of fun.


Who is this for?

8 – 11 year-olds
