Sample Schedule

In this course, students will explore game design and programming using C++.

Here’s a sample of what each week in the course could look like! Please keep in mind that students will progress at varying paces; this is a general outline of key material and the overall student experience.

During the first week, students will learn C++ coding fundamentals and the basic building blocks of computer programming. They’ll apply these essential skills to projects throughout the week. By the end of the week, students will have built their own game utilizing graphic libraries and custom controls.

During the second week, students will tackle coding challenges and games to test and grow their skills. They’ll create games such as Checkers and Tetris, as well as learn about creating algorithmic simulations and random number generation. After completing these projects, students will plan and create their own games or applications to explore and develop the coding skills they’ve learned so far.
