Kids can create a video game from scratch

Nemesis Video Game Lounge in Pointe-Claire is offering beginner and intermediate classes this fall

Does your child want to learn how to make video games instead of just play them? If so, he or she may be interested in the KidCoders program at Nemesis Video Game Lounge in Pointe-Claire Village.

The after-school program is offering coding lessons to kids aged 8-14 for two to four hours per week from September to December.

Those in the beginner class will learn the basics of coding and Javascript, as well as how to make characters move. The intermediate class will introduce gravity and physics to the game. Each class will end with students creating their own video game.

Beginners can take classes on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., while the intermediate class will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Computers will be provided, as well as log-in credentials so students can continue to work on their games from home.

The Nemesis Video Game Lounge is at 298 Lakeshore in Pointe-Claire Village.
