Increase Your Python Skills

Take your python skills up a level by building fun and interactive games. Build bigger and more complex programs as you learn about classes and object-oriented programming. We will use these new skills and our previous skills with Tkinter to build lunar lander, brick breaker, pong, and even a Pokemon battle game! Later in the week, we will also learn how to use Pygame, a python module built specifically for making games. This module will allow us to build more professional looking games complete with sounds, starting screens, and better graphics.


Make an App with Lua!

Get started with mobile app development learning Lua. Lua is a cross-platform mobile programming language that is widely used to make games. Learning Lua will show students how to transfer their knowledge of one programming language to another. This will prepare them well for when they need to learn multiple languages in college. In addition, students will become familiar with using simulators as they play their games directly on the computer using the mobile simulator Corona. The completed game will be able to run on Android and IOS devices, however IOS devices will require registration of an Apple Developer account.
