Welcome adventurers! Code Quest is a series of courses for young people to learn computer coding by making their own video-games. In Platforming Peril, we will be making a 2D retro game inspired by the likes of Mario and Sonic, and along the way, we'll learn the basic principles of coding logic, object collision and more.

Parents are welcome to participate. If you bring your own laptop, beforehand, please download and install "Scratch 3". We can provide laptops for those without but you must bring a USB drive to save your project on.

Programming Language: Scratch
