3D Character Animation

With 3D character animation, games become so realistic that you can’t even distinguish them from reality. Watch this video and see what our students created in the 2018 Autumn half-term camp!

3D Computer Games Design

A 3D games designer can create characters that move smoothly through the game environment, as well as realistic environments for those characters to explore. Here’s what our students created in our 3D computer games design course!

Build Computers

Kids learn about games design and coding while working together on this fun and educational activity. And when it’s all done, they get to play games on the computers they created themselves.

Let your kids learn how to build computers with our coding camps for kids courses!

Python Game Design

Students learned to make games using Python, a scripting language! In this game design course, we teach your kids the basics of games design, coding lessons, and how to make games using free Python software.

Welcoming.

Welcoming, professional and safeguarding.

Annmarie Dorsett

Parent

Amazing experience. Highly recommend these courses

I did a course in 3d games design last year, and recently finished the digital media design course. They both really helped me get to grips with the software we were using, expand my skills and create amazing games and different pieces. Both my tutors were extremely clear with their instructions, and helped me if I was stuck with anything along the way. I highly recommend these courses.

Great choice of courses

My son has been with Software Academy for a couple of years now and he still enjoys it. He has been on the games design course on Saturday’s and is now interested in also taking the coding course.

My son loves the academy

My son loves the academy. Amazing teachers that are always going the extra mile to make the students learn…it is obvious the teachers love what they do and are incredibly passionate about teaching . I cannot recommend this academy more. I prefer them over other academies, small class groups and great learning environment.
