Programming is quickly becoming one of the most valuable skills for students to learn, and what better way to learn it than by programming your own computer games! This class will use the popular GameMaker Studio 2 software in order to teach the basic principles of programming a computer, through a project-based curriculum developed specifically for this class. Skills learned in this class will form a foundation for continued learning in computer programming, and will give valuable exposure to students who may be interested in pursuing a path in Computer Science down the road.
