Creators of all ages learn to code in a real programming language and watch their commands come to life by drawing a sequence of 13 pictures with code. They’ll learn along the way about video game art history from Pong and other retro games through 8-bit art and Minecraft, weaving together computer science with art, history, and storytelling. The implementation is flexible––you can spend 1 hour or a few hours over one or multiple sessions. Learners can complete Pixel Hack on their own using guidance within the challenges, or you can turn Pixel Hack into an instructor-led journey, with a comprehensive educator manual full of suggestions. Students will be encouraged to add their own creative flair by hacking our challenges, to earn the Pixel Hacker Certificate.
