All you need to know

Take your next step in Python Programming and Game Development with Python’s Pygame library. Learn about game development with Pygame and create game assets such as characters, sounds, music & many more. Then use your new coding superpowers to design 3 – 4 Pygame projects. Create classes with Python and explore Object Oriented Programming while implementing good programming practices in your Python projects.

Pygame & Game Assets

Your game development journey begins at the Pygame library. Explore the various open-source tools you can use to build fun games as well as creating your own assets to enhance the gaming experience. 

Feeding Frenzy

Have a spin at designing a side scrolling game where players collect as much points as they can. Implement Pygame concepts such as setting up display screen, images and sound. Next, bring greater functionality to your game by introducing movements to objects and characters, and introduce variables such as player’s score & lives through text in Pygame.


Space Shooter

In this shooting game, we’ll learn to create and implement Python Classes for our players, asteroids and other game components, all while learning about good programming practices through Object Oriented Programming.


Monster Wrangler

Expand your newly acquired Python superpowers by designing new games such as Monster Wrangler where players are tasked to retrieve specific monsters while avoiding the others.

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

Parents love us

The happiest hours of your child's week

"N is enjoying the classes and looks forward to them every week. She especially enjoys learning CSS. She thinks her instructor should get a teacher award.

"My son had so much fun."

"My daughter learnt many things she had not imagined were possible to grasp at her age. In particular, before the class, she couldn’t make sense of the code she would see for a webpage, but now she understands what’s going on. She realizes the amount of work and thought that goes into making successful websites."
