Course Description

3D Games are a substantial part of our students' lives; young people see them as an art form, a means of socialising and an arena for competition. 

This course is all about engaging students in Python programming through the development of 3D using a tool called Ursina Engine, which is free and very easy to use. 

The course contains a general introduction to Game Development, followed by a methodical step-by-step overview of a Python 3D Game Design library called Ursina.

Once complete teachers will have the confidence and the resources (handouts and video tutorials) to teach students how to develop two games using Ursina Engine.
