GAME:IT Junior is an introductory level game design course that will engage students with project-based learning and get them excited about technology. Our unique, easy-to-follow material will take your students from simple “drag-n-drop” programming to actually writing some code. They will also learn to create animated and multi-directional sprites and add backgrounds & sounds to their games. At the end of each game lesson, there is an assignment that requires the students to build on their programming skills. This ensures they are learning and not just simply following directions.
In addition to the technical skills, this 18 week course covers the basic math & physics concepts used in game development and how the engineering design cycle is used to design games and as a problem solving method. It also explores the career opportunities and educational paths (both in high school and beyond) required to land a job in this industry.
GAME:IT Junior was developed by teachers for teachers. It is a full 18 week course that can be used in whole or in part in many ways, offering great flexibility for your school. It can be taught as a stand-alone course, a supplement to a math, science or technology class or as an after-school or summer learning program.
