Term time classes tend to be smaller, and focused to what you want to learn. The programmes which are best during the term are: Create 3D games. Learn to Code Scratch or Python, Web Design or Discovery Computing.
Learn to Code and Create 3D Games
Use Unity to build your very own game! You will learn to code and create 3D games and realise given enough time and resources, you could create anything in Unity. As students create their own personal projects, they will learn to manage the process from start to finish: outlining their concept, setting project milestones, and tracking progress. Learn the fundamentals of collision physics.
Explore the world of Minecraft! In this freeform course, students pick their own goals and work towards them together. At the start of the week, a modpack is chosen by the group and the students explore it in their own time. This could involve transforming themselves into monsters, destroying pillager outposts and raids, heading to the moon and beyond - the possibilities are endless.
This highly structured course is aimed to be a bridge between Minecraft Exploration and our programming courses. Students will start by creating a fairly standard Minecraft base, then they will utilise redstone and some of the tools provided by mods in order to automate it. Along the way, students will develop their programming skills, as well as learning a host of other useful abilities (including efficiency analysis). By the end of the course, the students will be well prepared to take the leap and do one of our Python courses.
