Three cheers for our July Student of the Month, Fox K.!
From the beginning, Fox has been crushing every project thrown his way.
Not only has he picked up coding super-quickly, but he has also proven to be a helpful resource in the classroom, assisting other students with their projects. Fox’s enthusiasm and fierce desire to learn make him a true force of nature!
Because Fox’s goal is to master all aspects of coding, his parents grabbed Game-U’s unlimited six-month package. He can attend EVERY class he finds interesting for one fixed price.
And we’re pretty sure Fox is taking full advantage of his learning opportunities! He’s tackling everything from creating mini-games in Construct 2 to exploring the Kids.Code class.
Fox’s Inspiration for His Endless Runner Game
As part of our Endless Runner unit, Fox used Construct 2 to create his own game based on the movie The Secret Life of Pets. He added elements like a scrolling cityscape, obstacles (disguised as people with leashes), and a cute pup as the player character. Watch the video, and listen for the “boing” sound every time the dog jumps!
In Kids.Code, Fox has been learning the basics of the Python scripting language. He used loops, methods, and properties to program a graphical turtle object to draw fun patterns like the one below.
What does Fox REALLY think of Game-U?
When asked why he likes Game-U, Fox had plenty to say!
“Number one, everybody is nice!” Fox also noted that it’s “easy to make friends here.”
Fox’s dad agrees and adds that Fox’s experience at Game-U has been “life-changing.”
He notes that Fox is “always excited to come here” and feels like Fox has “found his tribe” of like-minded kids who also love to learn coding.
In fact, when Fox’s parents told him about his six-month unlimited class package, Fox’s reaction was “so much greater than when we told him he was going to DisneyWorld!”
We can’t get enough of Fox’s enthusiasm, his problem-solving skills, and his helpful approach with fellow students. We salute our July 2019 Student of the Month, Fox K.!
We can’t wait to see what other accomplishments lie ahead at Game-U!
