In this presentation, we'll be using the python module pygame to create a small video game. Participants will be provided with base code that generates an empty game screen, and will be given guidance on how to add a player, platforms, enemies, and a goal. Assistance will be provided to help programmers choose an appropriate development environment for their desktop, laptop, or chomebook. Collaboration between coders is encouraged, and session will be available to both in-person and virtual participants. All levels of coders are welcome to this differientated session; from those who have never written a program to veteran programmers that are curious about pygame.

I've been teaching high school since 2002, and I think making video games are a great way to get kids excited about math and computer science.
