NCFE Accredited Computer Games Design Programming with Python

Get ready for an exciting adventure in computer games design programming! Our NCFE accredited course will teach students how to create their very own games using the powerful language of Python. Did you know that some of the biggest tech giants, including Microsoft, NASA, Google, Facebook, and Netflix, all use Python in their development processes?

By the end of the course, your child will have completed multiple projects and games that they can proudly share with friends and family. Plus, these projects will make a great addition to any school or college portfolio! Not only will this course enhance your child's coding abilities, but it will also help to sharpen their soft skills, such as creative thinking, problem-solving, and self-confidence. Let the fun begin!

What will your child learn in the programme?

This course offers a two-fold learning experience for your child, encompassing both technical and soft skills. The technical skills they'll acquire in coding, machine learning, and creating interactive applications will serve them well beyond the realm of gaming, translating to industries like finance, aerospace, and medical engineering. But it doesn't stop there - your child will also hone their creative thinking and problem-solving abilities, skills that will prove invaluable in everyday life.

Technical Skills

Our computer games design programming course offers an extensive range of technical skills that will enable your child to learn coding, machine learning, and how to create interactive applications. These skills are not only useful in the gaming industry but also in finance, aerospace, and medical engineering. Additionally, your child will develop their creative thinking and problem-solving abilities, which will be beneficial in their everyday life. The course covers 3D level design, game physics, artificial intelligence, character design, user interface, scripting, 3D modelling, texturing, material design, asset creation, concept design, and animation. These 3D game design classes are tailored for children aged 9 to 16, with or without tech experience. We offer weekend online coding classes and after-school classes to accommodate your schedule.

  • The only camp my daughter enjoyed

    "The quality of teaching was very good and they clearly had a passion for teaching and contributing. My daughter has attended many summer camps over the years and this is the only one that she enjoyed. I would happily recommend STEM for Kids programs to other parents!''

    Parent of one of our camp students
  • We hope to be back!

    Lots of things to do and we hope to be back. Thank you to Miss Raghad and the other teachers who were very friendly, and sent through daily photos. Thanks very much.

    Parent of one of our camp students
  • Great Experience!

    Great experience! Positive everyday. Our son confident so we knew settling would be fine. But he enjoyed camp overall and is looking forward to attending again.

  • Everything was perfect!

    My boys really enjoyed going to the classes and could not wait to start each morning. The loved the building and programming - so much so that we struggled to get them out of the door each afternoon!

    Parent of one of our camp students
  • The most valuable lesson was teamwork

    My son enjoyed the coding and would come home and discuss the projects he worked on. I think he enjoyed working with the robots the most.

    Parent of one of our camp students
  • She wanted to be prepared!

    It was a really fun experience for my child. She looked forward to attending each day and before we left home, checked to see what was scheduled for the day to see if the experiment was possible! Every day she told us about what she had learned.
