What we teach in Video Game Design

Empow’s Video Game Design Club teaches kids about programming logic, coding, and story-telling by capitalizing on their passion for video games. Our classes will cover all areas of Video Game Design (VGD), including designing sprites, building character control, creating an intuitive user interface, and more! VGD Club members start with their imagination, and we help them bring their ideas to life. Each VGD member will also have the opportunity to showcase their video games to fellow club members, allowing for constructive beta-testing in a fun and engaging environment.
