The Coding Program powered by Under the GUI is a co-developed computer programming class for children aged 7 up to teens. We provide a rich and engaging environment that inspires children and teens to innovate, think critically, and create with technologies on the fringe of our hi-tech culture. Our teachers encourage students to expand their limitless creativity through the creation of video games, apps, and traditional software using the same tools used by professionals in the field.
By getting “under” the interface, we learn about the processes that control it. As the developer of their game, our students have the opportunity to find their innovative potential through our curriculum as they progressively master their skills in GML, C#, and C++ on the GMlegacy, Unity, Unreal, and Visual Studio engines.
