Video Game Design (St. Joseph CES)


STEM MINDS™ is pleased to offer a lunchtime Video Game Design program every FRIDAY from 12:00 – 1:00 at St. Joseph CES from January 24 to March 27!

Why just play video games when you can make them? Join us as we go through the journey of a video game designer and learn how to design, create, and program your very own video game! Along the way, participants will learn the steps to successful game-making from planning to play-testing, level and character design, coding and art design, and more! Get ready to become a one-person video game design company and take the lead on the next game of the year!
