About This Activity

10 x 2 hour classes every week. Does your kid love videogames and understand the basics of Scratch? In this program, they will dive into Stencyl, a video programming platform inspired by Scratch. After learning the new abilities and complexities that Stencyl offers, kids move on to uncover advanced coding concepts, such as multiplayer games, complex data structures, input validation, randomly generated games (e.g. puzzles), AI chatbots, animation and Photoshop. By coding and designings their own game, they can create different worlds, more complex functions and customize their own characters. Like Scratch, Stencyl uses visual coding language (block-based coding) and prepares students with the foundation for many other programming languages like Python Java, and C. They will leave with broad comprehension of logic, flow and design. Contrary to what many think about videogames, this class will provide an opportunity to experiment, share and collaborate in an open-format classroom. Returning Makers who have taken a Scratch class with us before, or new Makers with block based game coding experience from elsewhere, are welcome. Program Topics: User Input Validation Standard Format Complex Data Structures (blocks and Lists) Multiplayer Games AI Chatbot Animation and Photoshop Randomly Generated Games (e.g. Mazes, Puzzles and Concentration)
