Project Overview.

This course is part of our Creative and Digital Careers in Halton Youth Project. During this eight week course, the young people participating will take part in a variety of online computer game design workshops. They will learn how to plan, code, build and publish their very own retro computer games. 

The sessions also explore creative careers and career pathways, with a focus on coding and game design, giving insight into what it is like to work in the industry. 

Who can get involved?

We are looking for young people from Halton aged 10-16 who have an interest in programming, computer game design and creative careers. 

There is a maximum of 10 places available for participants on this project.
