Tutoring Program Kickoff Open House – Free Class

We have an exciting opportunity coming up December 1st for aspiring game developers of any age group! We will be offering a game development workshop, which will be free for anyone who would like to attend! If you or your kids have any interest in game development, programming, or creating game art, feel free to come down to Warp Zone Louisville for a workshop covering a multitude of topics – no experience required!

The workshop will cover a general overview of putting together a game project using an amazing tool called Scratch. Attendees will learn a little about programming, game logic, and designing their own game art.

Feel free to bring your own computer! We will also have some laptops available for use for those without one, and stick around afterwards to learn about our upcoming one-on-one and group tutoring program.

Everyone is welcome!
