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.
This course hooks kids who are curious about programming! Games make computer science relatable and help students see immediate results in what they’re coding. Students are introduced concepts like loops, variables, conditionals, and arrays in an easy, step-by-step method that builds their confidence and original, portfolio-worthy games that can be played by family and friends!
Our AP Computer Science Principals course develops computational thinking practices students use to problem-solve and accomplish goals. Students learn to code by completing fun, rigorous game projects. They plan, design, code, and test software using GameMaker Studio™. Students who successfully complete this course will be prepared to take the AP CS Principles Exam.
