Video Game Design

The Program

ELEMENTARY GRADE 5 – 6

The Video game design program provides students with an opportunity to develop a greater awareness of the fields of technology and design through the creation of a video game from A to Z. As they discover the different components of a video game, students tackle every step of the creative process: developing ideas and prototypes, writing a game design document, carrying out the production, game tests and revisions. They learn to master a range of technological tools connected to the project’s different aspects (sound, visuals, programming, etc.).
