Ignite your child's creative & scientific imagination

These July school holidays, a uniquely innovative and creative 3-Day Coding & Game Design Program is being held at Scotch College, Swanbourne.

The Coding & Game Design Program is a fun, educational and team-based program, designed for children aged 8 to 12 years.

The Edgyx team believe every child can learn the basics of coding and their action-packed program encourages young children to embrace cutting edge technology, science and engineering for enjoyment, challenge and learning.

Held in a great central and inspirational venue with a low teacher to student ratio, the Coding & Game Design Program will see children have great fun while developing meaningful and deep learning outcomes.

The two key aspects of the Coding & Game Design Program are:

  • Introduction to Python

    Compared to other programming languages, Python is ideal for beginner kids to learn. The syntax is straightforward, which is why Python is regarded as a language suitable for kids. Python is often used to build websites and software, automate tasks, and conduct data analysis. It is also a general-purpose language, meaning it can be used to create a variety of different programs and isn't specialised for any specific problems.

    Python is a useful real-world skill for kids to learn as it can be used to develop software and apps in a variety of settings.

  • GDevelop For Game Making

    GDevelop is a fun and powerful beginner-friendly, no-code, game making app. GDevelop is far more suitable and productive for children than Unreal Engine, Unity or Gamemaker as it has quick drag and drop tools for the game space and an easy to follow coding language.

    GDevelop is focused on being easy to use, so children can spend more time on learning how to make a good game, rather than how to use a piece of software!

    With GDevelop, the finished 2D Game can be published on iOS, Android, Steam, itch.io, Messenger Gaming... basically anywhere except consoles!

    Enrolment is now open for this exciting school holiday program and places are strictly limited. Choose from two dates: 5th - 7th July OR 12th - 14th July at Scotch College.

    Early bookings are advised: book now at www.edgyx.com.au/coding-game-design-program.

    The fee is $315.00 per student. Computers are supplied but children are welcome to bring their own device.
