Spotlight on Our Students: Coolest Creations by YD Kids [March Edition]

It’s time for our favorite monthly series, Coolest Creations by YD Kids! Each month we showcase some of the impressive final projects created by Youth Digital students. These projects reflect all the hard work kids put into their courses, as well as some of the tech skills and software they learned along the way.

Many Youth Digital students are avid gamers, so this month, we’re featuring final projects from our courses that teach technology skills through creating video games. Let’s get started!

Here’s a peek at an awesome mobile game created by our student Luke G.!

AD1 - Luke Golobitsh

Mobile games continue to surge in popularity with kids, and in App Design 1, students complete the process of designing their very own gaming app that they can play and share with friends. Luke’s app features some really neat mechanics that include character duplication, impressive explosives, and interactive button mechanics.

Now, let’s take a look at a video game created by Adam G.!

GD1 - Adam Gould

Gaming is a popular hobby with the majority of kids today, and our courses empower kids to not only play games, but to create them! Our student Adam designed multiple levels in his game, and  whole universes that each have their own worlds inside! This game contains so much content, like multiple enemy types, flying vehicles, and power-ups, we were surprised how he was able to cram all of it into one single game! Adam clearly learned a lot in our Game Design course. Great job, Adam!

Our last project this month is a neat Minecraft mod built by Alex H.!

MD1 - Alex Hasselbacher

Mod Design 1 gives students the skills and tools they need to create unique Minecraft mods, and Alex did an amazing job with designing the pixel artwork for his mod! His fire and water mod delivers sharp textures and interesting character designs like the ghostly figures above. This was a super neat mod to play; thank you, Alex!

That’s all for the March edition of Coolest Creations by YD Kids! Stay tuned next month to see more final projects from our students.
