Learn Game development

Game Development Course for kids

Developing games through Block Coding simplifies the art of coding for young minds, where with the help of the visual blocks students can experiment and create their own games, animations, and stories.
This Coding Course from Tinker Coders helps your kids elevate vital 21st-century skills like Logical thinking, Computational thinking, Sequencing and many more. This will not help students to pick up advanced coding courses in future but also will help to think critically and find solutions to problems. There are no prerequisites to joining this course. Students will be taught using open-sourced Scratch software.

Frequently Asked Questions

Playing video games was once perceived to be a time-wasting distraction. Today, games have evolved as an educational and social tool that helps kids nurture their creativity, problem-solving, and social skills.
Around 80% of boys (aged 8-11) have made playing video games a part of their daily routine. Gaming can now be a legitimate career. Video game designers bring stories to life. It involves multiple disciplines and not just technology.
Since there is a shortage of skilled game developers, the perks of being one come with a monetary benefit.
Kids are exposed to learning by playing games at an early age. Hence, their first exposure to coding can include game development. They first learn by editing existing games they have been playing such as Minecraft. Through game development, kids are exposed to the process from start to finish. They get to nurture their ideas to make them interactive for others to play. You can start introducing it with existing educational games like Minecraft.

The five essential stages of game development are: discovery, production, testing, release, post-release.

  • Discovery: This is the stage where the idea for a game comes to life. The scope of the game as well as what is required to release the game

  • Production: This is the stage where you code the various elements of the game – the characters, levels, rules, etc.

  • Testing: This is the stage where you discover the bugs in your game and debug the errors to make it ready for an initial release

  • Release: The stage where your game is ready to be distributed to the public.

  • Post-release: Here is where you create different versions of the game, create bonus levels, build in-game events and new downloadable content.

Kids are known for their curiosity and coming up with new ideas. Game development courses and design will help them channel this skill while also building basic science and math concepts. To come up with a unique idea is a fun process. Deciding the theme to the characters – allows them to challenge themselves while thinking in creative ways. There are various tools and kid’s programming languages that can let students learn this skill at their own pace. Let us look at one of such languages.
