Each week has a take home project which is creative and challenging no matter what your experience level. The mini game platform is something that students can carry with them to show off their game creations.

Students work in pairs by bringing their own computer to class and using our monitors. Paired programming lets students make friends and use teamwork to work through problems when they get stuck. You also leave class with your actual configured system to continue at home.
