This term at Brillantmont, our Grade 8 and Grade 9 students have been taking their coding skills to the next level with some video game creation! Expanding on their knowledge of Python, the students have been designing video games from scratch - taking a little inspiration from some gaming classics, of course!
Game coding courses at Brillantmont
From Pong to Space Invaders, the students have been manipulating coding systems to produce their own takes on video game titles, Plus, they have been learning a little about the video game industry, and the types of roles and tasks involved in major productions.
These impressive efforts by the students have taken many hours of concentration, innovation and problem solving, and they are very proud of the final results!

Under the guidance of Mathematics Coordinator John Kennedy, the students have been expanding their Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) skills through the courses at Brillantmont. We know that these skills will prepare our pupils for university and beyond in an increasingly digital world - and that they have a whole lot of fun in these lessons as well!
