July 22, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

In this Level 200 installment of our MakeCode virtual workshop series, students ages 8 and older use block-based coding to create a side-scrolling video game with MakeCode Arcade.

Building Slide Scrollers:

Students learn fundamental game and coding concepts like sprites, tile maps, and coordinates, and use their new skills to create and customize a playable side-scrolling video game.

By the end of the workshop, students will have:

  • Learned and used key game design and coding concepts used in building side-scrolling games
  • Coded a playable game
  • Published their game via a URL so they can continue to play and develop it after the camp
