Course description

Students will recreate the popular game of Flappy Bird and learn, on an introductory level, the basics of game development and computer programming. Students will navigate their Flappy Bird while avoiding obstacles (pipes) that come their way. It’s a game enjoyed by all who play it. The difference is, students will not be end-users, who only get the chance to play a video game, they will be the developers who will create the game!
