At Surge Academy, we offer a diverse array of engaging courses designed to empower and inspire learners of all levels. Unleash your child’s potential with our fun and engaging projects, and pave the way for a successful journey into the world of coding and digital design.
This course introduces students to the fundamentals of computers, as well as programming using Scratch, a visual programming language designed at MIT’s Media Lab. This course will empower young students with no prior programming experience to design their own animations, games, interactive art, and stories all while learning essential information about how computers work, how to operate a computer, and how to be a responsible digital citizen.
Students will create their own platformer/side-scrolling video game using a beginner-friendly game engine that helps them create 2D games with little to no code. They will create a variety of exciting games with sprites, level objectives, enemies and more! At the end of the course, each student will have designed their own video game to take home and it will also be uploaded to the web to share with friends and family.
Students will learn how to develop video games using the C# programming language and the Unity game engine. Students will create a series of games that will help them learn how to code and the basics of creating a functioning and engaging video game.
In this hands-on course, our youngest students will become digital explorers, discovering the fundamentals of coding through creative storytelling, games, and interactive activities. Students will work with Scratch Jr., an introductory visual programming language. As they navigate through exciting coding challenges, our young coders will not only hone their logical and thinking and computational skills, but also gain confidence, learn to collaborate with peers, and develop a lifelong love for learning.
