Learn how to build video games and mobile applications

If you are interested in learning how to build video games, you have come to the right place. Sign up to become part of Propeller Tech Academy. We provide camps, classes, and after school programs designed to teach technical skills and inspire the next generation of innovators. Students will not only learn to build their own unique video games but also increase their science, math, engineering and design knowledge.

Launch a Game

Students will develop the skills necessary to build a game from the ground up. They will plan, storyboard, design, develop and launch a real working video game.

More than building

Propeller isn't just about building games. Students will have fun with activities that teach students how math and science work hand-in-hand with developing video games.

Continued Learning

Learning doesn't stop when the student leaves the classroom. All students will gain access to FREE resources to continue building and creating games while improving their tech skills.

Team Work

Contrary to popular belief, game building is a major team effort. All students work in teams to come up with unique ideas and build their original games.

Why Hello. You guessed it, that guy over there is me, Adam. I am a Propeller Tech Academy director and instructor. Having the opportunity to introduce students to game development is rewarding, but honestly the most rewarding thing is seeing where they take it!

Shane Thomas

Propeller Director

Yep, that's me, Shane. I am a Propeller Tech Academy Director and instructor. I know this might sound cheesy, but I have my dream job. Getting to go to work and help students learn about math, science, and STEM topics while building video games is just plain AWESOME.

Eric Kannas

Game Instructor

Yep, that is me up there. I am one of the game instructors at Propeller Tech. Since I am already a "gamer" at heart, the transition to teaching students was a SUPER easy decision for me. Every day I get to work with students who share the same passions as me and that is the best.
Favorite Game: Destiny

Mike Chamness

Game Instructor

Hello fellow gamers! It's me, Mike. I must confess, I LOVE VIDEO GAMES. My passion for video games definitely shows when I am teaching students at Propeller Tech. The idea of helping a student create their own unique game from scratch and turning it into an app is amazing.
