8 Marysville Parks, Culture & Recreation • Summer 2017 Video Game Development-Int/Adv Game Development-Intermediate/Advanced is for coders who are ready to take their game development skills up to the next level. Instructors serve as guides and coaches to small groups of campers as they build more complex games of their own. These games will feature advanced concepts such as AI (Artificial Intelligence), game physics, or multiplayer functionality. After the camp has ended, campers will be able to share projects with family and friends and continue programming at home with their Coding with Kids Scratch account. Prerequisites: Understanding of basic coding concepts (variables, conditionals, debugging, etc). Ability to independently create simple games. Coder's Ladder experience: Level 2-3. Students typically achieve this level of knowledge in one 8-week session of classes or one week of summer camps.
