A Computer Science CTE Course to Engage Students

This course teaches students intermediate to advanced topics in game development, including complex physics simulations, AI navigation and behavior scripting, 3D math and geometry, art and design principles, as well as industry-established software design and development practices. By the end of the course, students will be able to create 2D and 3D games and simulations from scratch, covering various game genres. They will also have gained proficiency in C#, Unity Engine, and Blender 3D, which are the most important technologies taught in this course.

This course covers:

  • Game Programming and Scripting in C#
  • Computer science concepts including but not limited to data structures, algorithms, software design, and computer system principles.
  • 3D math concepts including but not limited to algebra, geometry, vectors and quaternions
  • Object-Oriented Programming
  • 3D Modeling and Design
  • Newtonian Physics concepts including but not limited to friction, force, spring force and damping
  • Career readiness and Unity exam preparation


Upon completing this course, students will be prepared to earn the following industry-recognized certification(s):
