our core activities
Our fortnightly after-school club for young game developers to get together to learn about making games, develop their skills, and meet like minded people.
Every other Wednesday.
Want to spend half-term making new friends and making videogames? Devcamp is an intensive week-long game-making course, held over the holidays.
Want to get started in game-making? Our 10 week series of sessions, held during term time on a Saturday morning, is the perfect starter.
Upcoming Education Activities
Join us for a intro to Scratch, a 3 hour workshop dedicated to getting you to grips with starting to use your first programming programming language.
Game Maker is a 2D game program that is recommended for people who are ready to move away from Scratch, without jumping into the deep end of coding.
