Zulama Computer Science Courses

Teachers, students and professional game designers all agree: game design is an awesome way to learn computer science! These three courses all use game design to engage high school students and teach them computer science concepts. Each year-long course gives students skills that they can use now and that can shape their futures.

Introduction to Computer Science through Game Design
