Why Is Game Development a Perfect Way to Learn How to Code?

Engaging and maintaining a student’s interest throughout a education program is key in absorbing and retaining what is learned in class. Games stimulate the imagination, honing creative and logical elements of a child’s mind, keeping them engaged for the entire program. A sense of ownership is also important and every single one of our Game Development programs gives your child the opportunity to take home what they’ve built during the program. 

 

Progression

Graduating from our 2D Game Development programs equip students with the skills required to progress on to our Practical Coding programs and learn new languages like HTML, C++, Python and Javascript!
