This session weill be on GameMaker’s GML (GameMaker language) as a tool for introducing object oriented programming.  GameMaker provides a grat free tool for learning purposes and, for sutdents who get hooked, GameMaker is transitioning to become a full studio for purchase if students want to make games and then port them to HTML5, Google Play, or the Apple Store.

Furthermore, GameMaker is a natural scaffolding language as it has a drag and drop coding alternative at first to form an understanding of concepts before switching to the text based coding.

This session will be geared towards introductory to intermediate level courses from teh High School CSE pathway.
