Game Design Platformer

Description
A platformer game is a side-scrolling, Mario-type game where students program characters and a two-dimensional obstacle course. They attempt to avoid or overcome enemies and reach an end goal on multiple levels. We will create our own game of defending a dojo that from a ninja attack, delivering pizza, or escaping an ancient temple.

MineCraft Coding - How to train your turtle

Description
MineCraft is a lot of fun, but mining and building by hand can take a long time. In this class you will learn how to program a helper robot called a “turtle” to do those tasks for you. This is a great introduction to the idea of coding, because it’s done using a simple visual language in a game kids already love to play. The coding starts simple and gets progressively more complicated as the class goes on. Let’s see how much you can get your ‘turtle’ to do!
