Our classes are for ages 10-16 and cover many disciplines of game development including; coding, story, art & animation, music & sound, and game design.
In 2017, we are running a free six-week summer program July 8-August 12, thanks to a generous grant from The Humana Foundation.
Summer 2017 class sign-ups are now closed, but you can still sign up for future classes!

Interested in teaching kids?

We are looking for talented and dedicated individuals to teach the next generation of programmers, artists, musicians, and storytellers through game development! Currently, we are assembling a list of interested instructors, and there is no prior education experience necessary. All applicants will need to assist a current instructor and complete a background check. Please let us know if you are interested!
