Meet the Zulama Game Design Program

When kids are building games, they’re building enthusiasm
and skills that lead to high-tech careers.

Does your district struggle to get students (and teachers) excited about STEM subjects and Computer Science? You are not alone!

Today's students need to learn computer skills for tomorrow's jobs. Yet teaching technology is the very thing that most schools are struggling to provide, because: #1: schools can’t find technology curriculum and #2: most teachers aren’t certified to teach computer science. Zulama has solved both problems!

#1: Zulama has developed an unprecedented way to engage teenagers in programming and STEM subjects—through game design. Our expert instructional designers worked with faculty from one of the top game design programs in the world at Carnegie Mellon University. We developed a mix of modules and courses that fit within middle school and high school curriculum.

#2: With Zulama, schools don’t need to find and hire computer science teachers. We have developed a way to make programming easy for ALL teachers to teach, regardless of their content area.

Zulama Course Packages

Zulama offers three extremely affordable packages of courses, which all include access to digital curriculum, comprehensive teacher resources, training and implementation support.

Modern Learning Computer Science Platform


The Modern Learning Computer Science Platform helps schools integrate computer science and game design across their schools with our Short Courses, Long Courses, and Computer Science Courses. Together they're perfect for introducing or expanding computer science, replacing outdated electives or creating your own Computer Science and Game Design Academy.

Computer Science and Game Design Fundamentals


The Computer Science and Game Design Fundamentals package gets schools started with computer science and game design quickly and easily. This package includes nine Short Courses, which can be completed in 20 hours or less, as well as the Evolution of Games Long Course. These rigorous, engaging educational experiences are perfect for use in rotational blocks, embedding into existing courses, or using in summer camps and after school programs.

Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles Modern Learning Platform


The Zulama Advanced Placement Computer Science Principles Modern Learning Platform includes the Advanced Placement (AP) Computer Science Principles course. This 160-240 hour course teaches students to use computational thinking, solve problems, analyze innovations in computing, and deeply understand the global impact of the Internet. Students who successfully complete this course will be prepared to take the AP CS Principles Exam.

"The Zulama course has given students the opportunity to immerse themselves in 21st Century skills. Students have learned to work independently, collaboratively, and to become task-oriented."

Gain cutting-edge skills and develop a portfolio of games that will make you a superior candidate for a position in the game industry or any business that uses e-learning, visualization, simulation, interactive web applications and graphics-based computer systems.



The demand grows daily for creative professionals capable of helping people visualize difficult concepts and understand vital information. Digital art skills can be applied to careers in marketing, advertising, television and even a field like global trade.



Game design is a massive international industry. The Zulama program prepares you to pursue a career in "the biz", or in any field that requires a mix of creative and technical skills.



In our internet-based culture that increasingly relies on visual information, the ability to communicate using multiple media forms is an increasingly valuable skill.


More Than Games

Through hands-on, project-based learning, Zulama students develop portfolios and skills they need to be successful in today's global workforce. Students are prepared to pursue careers not only in the game industry, but a wide variety of fields that combine creativity and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
