October Half Term Code Camp

Welcome to Junior Game Creators

Virtual Holiday Workshops

There are few better ways to pass the time when stuck indoors than developing your own video game.

Trouble is, game development can seem difficult at first and many who attempt it without assistance often fail and lose interest.

This is where we come in.

Over the last 5 years our after school and holiday workshops have guided thousands of pupils into video game development by delivering our workshops in a fun and easy-to-follow atmosphere.

Having fun while making games quickly builds the skill and confidence of our pupils to a level that they can then create their own projects. And remember, we are always here to help you get unstuck.

Our Virtual Holiday Workshops use the popular Scratch game engine and the more recently popular webinar service Zoom. Using the chat function, Zoom allows Scratch projects to be easily accessed and is a great tool for helping pupils who may be stuck.

Please see below for our upcoming holiday workshops and how they are structured.
