What if instead of just playing games and watching TV, your kids could actually make THEIR OWN games and animated stories?
This course is aimed for kids between 8 and 16 and they’ll learn how to make simple games, stories and animation.
"Every game designer should make one explicitly world-changing game. Lawyers do pro bono work, why can't we? "
game development with unity
Kids learn not only the most important concepts in programming such as conditional statements, variables, methods, parameters, and loops, but they also learn essential design principles as they lay out and design their 3D Environment.
Another resource created by MIT is the App Inventor, developed with the firm belief that anyone can create the next great app. Parents and kids can work together to create their first app and then follow tutorials to improve it or create other useful apps. More advanced users can troubleshoot problems in the community forums or read through the teacher curricula to take at-home lessons to the next level.
game design with scratch
Scratch is a popular tool for parents who want to engage in coding activities with their kids. Developed by MIT, Scratch allows kids to create stories while programming and use coding skills to make games and other interactive media. This website is optimal for children ages 8 to 16 and features multiple step-by-step guides and tutorials for children and parents of all programming experience levels.
