Coding class teaches teens to make their own video games

Posted: Updated:

BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- While many kids play video games during their winter breaks, some at Binghamton High School are coding their own games. 

A class put on by TechWorks! teaches students from across the region how to use Unity Game Engine. It's a computer software that mainly uses two types pf code to build video games. 

The goal of the class is to teach kids how to code in an interesting way.

"If they can actually see it and visualize it and be like well I'm moving a character now with code that's fun," said Unity Instructor Josia Bahl. 

Besides being entertaining, the class teaches real-world skills that will help them in the future.

"I want to be a software developer for Google or Apple," said 12-year-old Felix Palmer of Cooperstown. 

TechWorks! will offer another video game coding class on January 15. Information on how to sign up can be found here.
