2D Video Game Design with Flowlab

Does your child love video games? In this class, we will channel that passion by having them learn to build their own! Together with like-minded students, they will build simple video games step-by-step, experimenting with specific tasks and movements, and sharing gameplay with their peers, while learning important STEM concepts of design, problem-solving, and trial/error. They will learn to use the accessible game design program Flowlab — no coding required — a platform used by many professional game designers to prototype new builds. All games will be stored online, so students can gain access after class ends, and, if their game is approved, upload it to Google Play or the Apple Store!
