7 year olds can code a game


It’s true. I’m sure you know a 7 year old who would love to code their own game. At Under the GUI, kids as young as 7 can take coding classes. And yes, those beginner classes involve coding a game of their very own.

Different levels, different ages

The first two levels of Under the GUI’s classes work with younger children to introduce them to the concepts of computer programming. The visual scripting they use allows kids to understand some basics of coding without having to worry too much about the nitty gritty of typing in complex code.

The real gaming deal

For kids 11 years and older in Level 3, instructors move into teaching Unity3D and C#, the languages professionals game studios use. This is the real deal, and instructors teach kids best practices and give them the framework to build their own apps. If you have a little person itching to go into game design, this would be a terrific way start out.
