Game Dev, Code & Animation Workshops for Schools!

Have you heard about Troll Inc's workshops for schools? We offer coding, animation, video production and game development workshops tailored to suit your students.

Whether you're just starting to introduce coding, or you've already got a few budding developers at work, we can provide specialised training across a huge variety or programs and packages. Your students could even end up with a game on the App Store, Google Play and Windows, like Chicken Jumper, designed by Thornhill College students!


From simple event driven programming in Scratch to advanced coding and visual effects in Unity, we have it all. Our tutors are highly experienced with multiple games and apps released, this practical experience allows students an exclusive look at professional development. Don't just take my word for it, see what others have said!

Feedback from Honeycomb Unity workshop participants:
"The most valuable part of the course was talking to experienced instructors."
"I liked the step by step guidance."

“I really loved the Unity3D programming course led by Gavin McLaughlin in the AMMA centre. The space was comfortable and the computers were hi-spec and running like a dream. Gavin's teaching style suited me - understated, good pacing, everything clearly explained. He told us the story and context of what was happening at each stage, and we followed along at our own pace. My programming skills are not very advanced, but I felt I could progress with help from the tutor team. I look forward to attending another course with this team to advance my skills.”

Troll Inc have worked with School Employer Connections devising curriculum linked workshops for 11 to 18 year olds. They have demonstrated the ability to adapt work to specific age groups in both delivery and content. Troll Inc show expertise and dedication to their own work which they use to support the school community.

Troll Inc conducted a 3 day workshop for the ICT department at St. Mary's College. The workshops were extremely professional, well organised, appropriately pitched and backed up with suitable support materials and follow on advice. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
