Turn your students from players into makers

We believe that students should show that they can be creators and problem solvers, and no multiple choice test or online quiz can demonstrate these skills as effectively as creating, debugging and iterating upon a game that they are proud to call their own.

Teachers love GameSalad

GameSalad is a wonderful addition to my STEAM lab, it teaches game making in a fun and easy to learn way. My students love it!

Denise Dixson
Teacher, Southwest Secondary Learning Center

With GameSalad, students are not just having fun but also changing their lives with a career option they love…It’s a great self-esteem booster for them to see people enjoying their work. We’re a college and career readiness program. GameSalad is helping us fulfill our mission.

Naomi McSwain
Executive Director, Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center

Instead of fighting frustrating syntax errors, hunting down missing semicolons, or poring over intimidating sample code, my students are visualizing their ideas in days and experiencing the thrill of seeing their work being enjoyed by others.

Douglas Gregory

GameSalad’s low barrier of entry and powerful toolset is great for education. Students in my classes are learning the fundamentals of game design while actually designing their first game at the same time. Some have already taken on their own side-projects!

Mike Rodriguez
Game Design and Integration Instructor at MCAET

Thank you for adding the Teacher Dashboard, combining the tutorials in the Creator, and making it step-by-step and easy for our students to navigate.

My students are fully engaged and cannot wait to start a new game! Thanks again for listening to teachers and implementing our ideas, WE LOVE GAME SALAD!

Patti Griffin
CTE Teacher, Computer Science & Keyboarding

GameSalad is one of the most effective Gaming Platforms I’ve used. GameSalad has a lower barrier to entry, so that I can teach computational thinking skills to students.

Mayank Malik
Chief Architect/SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory

GameSalad has inspired my students to use their creativity. Each day, I see my students jump right into their games and strive to create something new and different. They are excited when their hard work pays off and they’ve created a workable, fun game to show their friends.
