*NEW* Game Development and Coding Program

If you have ever wanted to learn how to code for computers and games, or learn what it takes to run your own eSports operation, Eastland-Fairfield ASPIRE's new Game Development and Coding program is an excellent opportunity to begin that journey. Through our partnership with ASPIRE and Mastery Coding, adult learners can now access four (4) semester-long courses in game development that can help them prepare a professional portfolio and help students earn industry certifications as well as real-world experience in a growing field.

Not only will you learn coding skills aligned to STEM/STEAM standards, but learners will become involved in the fastest-growing sport in the world: eSports. The course will provide everything you need to know to run a successful eSports team and is the perfect gateway to coding and other technology-related fields.

No coding or eSports experience is necessary. Basic computer skills are needed. 

If you are interested, please click here to complete our survey.

If you are interested in coding, game development, and/or eSports check out the EFCTS ASPIRE program's new Game Development & Coding class!

Our Aspire Program will help prepare you for one of Ohio's  in-demand occupations that require a high-school diploma or HSED (high school equivalency diploma) such as GED or HiSET.
