Do you know a budding Junior Game Creator? Try our FREE Introduction to Video Game Making Online Workshop

  • RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 7+

    Creative coding is so much fun, especially when children get a real game as an outcome. We let the game be the teacher. We find a minimum age of 7 is ideal for the keyboard and mouse skills to thrive in our sessions. Our sessions can create a hobby that may become a career.

  • NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY

    Our teaching delivery of ‘Play to Learn’ ensures that children remain engaged and advance their learning through hands on practice. Learners of any skill level are welcome to join, and we can adapt to their skill levels and interests.

  • PROGRESS THROUGH THE RANKS

    Designing and coding a video game can get complex relatively quickly. To eliminate the risk of frustration we have levels for learners to progress through. Each level will prepare the learner for new challenges. We always start at the Novice level with this FREE session but then will advise on progress and best tools for our budding game makers to use.

  • GAME CREATING GURUS

    Each workshop is hosted by one of our Game Creating Gurus. The host will be on hand to assist with any difficulties and will demonstrate live how to create the session’s game. Our budding game creators then create their own versions to keep and show their friends

  • FREE INTRODUCTORY SESSIONS

    Our Introductory sessions are currently free if booked before the end of April. This whole online workshop situation is new to everyone! We wanted families to be able to give it a try before committing to regular sessions. There is a small fee of £7.50 for subsequent sessions should you wish to continue the learning journey.

  • HOW LONG DOES EACH WORKSHOP LAST?

    Each workshop lasts one hour and requires a few minutes preparation to join the session and get going. Before each workshop we will send joining instructions and workshop requirements.

  • FUN & EDUCATIONAL

    Video game design brings together a whole host of different skillsets and sees Maths and Computer science coexist with Art, Music and Animation. Pulling everything together calls for logical thinking, planning and problem solving. You’ll be amazed by how they progress.

  • FLEXIBLE SESSION SCHEDULES

    During these challenging times we have made every online session stand alone in its own right. You do not have to worry about being fixed to attending regular sessions one after the other. Just sign up for what works for you, drop in and drop out as suits.

Register for your FREE Introduction today. Spaces are limited and FREE until the end of April.
