Frequently Asked Questions

GDevelop, a 2-D game design engine,  introduces coding and game design simultaneously in a way that’s approachable fun for kids. Kids will be introduced to event logic, a precursor to coding that will help them build a programmer’s mindset, as they build and publish their very own games.

This lesson encourages kids to think like game designers or programmers, rather than just players, opening doors to STEM. Game design with GDevelop promotes creativity, problem-solving, self-direction, and more —all of which stand out as valuable benefits that creating custom video games can provide.

The market value of the gaming industry is over $151.06 billion dollars, with steady growth predicted through 2027. Your child could be the next big name in game design, and if their STEM journey leads them elsewhere, they will still build valuable digital literacy skills. Tech literacy is key to success with 21st century skills, and yes those skills can be fun to learn! 

Absolutely! Because our Online Private Lessons are 1-on-1 with an instructor, the curriculum is customized to meet your child's skill level, unique interests, and long-term goals. Whether they are just starting out or super advanced, our experienced instructors will engage them to bring out their best!

Our Online Private Lessons offer live, 1-on-1 learning with an experienced, USA-based instructor and curriculum tailored to your child's interests and skill level! Once you select a topic and purchase a lesson package, you can easily choose your instructor and schedule a 60-minute lesson for the date and time that works best for you.  

Once scheduled, you can share notes about your child and any specific goals they might have. When it's time for their lesson, your child will connect with their instructor via Zoom. You will receive a post-session progress report via email so you can track your child's success! 

Each child will need a Windows or Mac computer with audio and video capabilities. We do not recommend tablets or Chromebooks, as the multi-tasking ability between Zoom and other required software is often unreliable or nonexistent.
