For Grades 5-9

Arcade Club is a virtual coding club where participants in Grades 5-9 can expand their coding skills and connect with other budding coders. Over the course of six 90-minute virtual sessions, and guided by our Arcade Club Instructors, club members will work at their own pace to design and build a variety of video games. Using MakeCode Arcade, club members will work on individual projects, learn how to create unique game mechanics, and share their ideas with other club members. Participants should have some experience in coding, as this club will not have step-by-step lessons, but rather will be guided by the interests of club members. Instructors will lead some lessons, guide individuals with difficult tasks, and assist in troubleshooting. Club members may need to work on their projects outside of club time in order to complete their games.
Tech requirements: A desktop/laptop computer, or a Chromebook, and internet access is required for Arcade Club. A mouse is not required, but is preferred.
Cost: $150 per participant
