Level 2 Video Game Dev.
Create a more advanced game of your own design! Learn the key foundational elements of game development.
Students will gain an in depth understanding of programming and begin learning basic digital design and art skills. Each of these multi-week sessions build on skills learned in Level 1. You can take a few, all, or hop in and out as you desire! When students complete all sessions, they will have a polished video game ready to share, play and compete.
Level 2 student teams are invited to participate in our annual Shark-Tank event, where they prepare and present their game to a panel of commercial video game executives, competing for awards, internships, scholarships and prizes.
