Saturday Enrichment Classes

CODE YOUR DREAM GAME with Rio Grande School Afterschool Activities Educator Mike Young, on Four Saturdays, April 15 - May 6

High scores and extra lives are great, but what if you could design your own game? In this project-based studio class, we'll take a love of games and dive under the hood, unlocking creativity, logic skills, and problem-solving. From 2D platformer to point-and-click adventure, 3D exploration to racing, we'll use Web-based tools—built specifically for kids—to learn how to bring dream games to life.

Previous coding exposure (with, Scratch, or Tynker, etc.) suggested, but not required.
Appropriate for children in grades 2-6.
Cost: $120
Dates: Saturdays, April 15 - May 6
Time: 1 - 4pm
Space is limited and registration is required. Please email Neal Turnquist with questions and to register.
