What is it all about?

If you're here, then you've heard about programming. In this course we will build our original games using coding, design and your epic imagination.

We will make stuff fly, run, shoot and explode and we will do it with your own characters in the worlds that you design yourselves.

This summer Vacation!

Classes run from 9:00 - 12:00

Monday - Friday

What will we do?

Story and Design

It doesn't matter if you never created a story or designed a game character. As in anything there's a secret to doing both. We'll share with you the tricks of good storytelling and talk about what goes into designing a game. Use this new knowledge and let your imagination do the rest. You will design everything for your game yourself. 

Language and Framework

Programming languages are a way to speak to a computer. We will do it with JavaScript and the framework is P5js. We don’t use offline editors. Everything we do is done in a browser, so you can access your code and work on it from anywhere.

Publish Your Game Online

When we’re done with the game, we’ll publish it online so that anyone you want will be able to play it. You’ll get to work with databases to create a Top Score board, so that you’ll know exactly who’s best at playing your game.

After Class Activity

We have an After Class Activity option available for this age group.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

While your kid has a summer vacation you most likely still have to be at work, so picking up your kid at 12:00 might not be that easy. By choosing this option you can pick your kid up as late as 16:00 instead, for only 1000 kr more.

WHAT WILL MY KID BE DOING FOR THE NEXT 4 HOURS??

First there comes a lunch break

We’ll take a break all together, have some food and some free time. All you need to do is pack a matpakke.

Seminar on Internet safety

In the 21 century you need to know not only how to safely cross the road or that you shouldn’t talk to strangers. You need to learn how to keep yourself safe in the online world.

Preparing for Friday presentations

The big presentation awaits us on Friday so we’ll put some time into learning some presentation tricks and making it exciting for our guests.

Having fun

After learning so many new things and working for several hours we deserve to have some fun. We’ll finish the day with a Nintendo Switch and a game tournament!

Meet the teachers

Rafid Hoda

I started building my own games and websites when I was 10 years old and sold my first website at 14 years old.

I have a passion for education and learning and I spend my days working on how to make it easy, fun and engaging to learn new things.

For the past two years I have taught hundreds of kids how to build their own games, websites and programs.

Aleksander Malde

My greatest interests are education and learning and I spend a major part of my time coming up with new and exciting ways for students to acquire knowledge and understand things deeply.

Many a child, and teenagers alike, have been educated in the craft of game development under the reign of my might… I taught a lot of kids how to code cool stuff!

Read our reviews

"My parents have always made me go to different holiday courses because of them having to work. But this is definitely the best course that I've been through yet."

"One thing I REEAALLYYYYY enjoy is that I can now try to code on my own, the teachers were VEEEEEEERYYYYY clear. I think I now may make my Videogame Of Dreams!"

"This course was amazing! I loved to code and make these games. The teacher's were great and helped me when i needed it. I got new freinds, and i liked the games i made (with help)."

"I've only been to a few programming courses before this one and they were all mediocre, but this one was well planned, had good teachers and was a very positive experience."
