Dive into the world of video game design using the MakeCode Coding Platform! Functioning similarly to Scratch (a program used in schools nationwide), MakeCode was developed by Microsoft to make coding easier and more fun through programming with blocks of code. Students will see their creations come to life as they create videos games with graphics similar to games developed in the 90’s. Without having to worry about exact syntax, students are able to make amazingly imaginative and impressive games in no time!
