Think Like a Game Designer / Think Like an App Designer (TLAGD)
In this 8-week program students work in teams with industry-leading game designers and engineering students to learn the basics of game development. Available at an introductory, beginner, and intermediate level, club members graduate having zero experience in coding to building apps and storyboards, designing characters, and creating virtual worlds using programming developed by MIT.
Students come away with math and science skills, learn how to collaborate with others, how to research, and how to move their ideas forward-skills valuable in any endeavor.
