VIDEO GAME DESIGN CAMP | July 31 – August 4

July 31, 2017, 9:00 a.m. – Friday, August 4, 3 p.m.

In the few years that have passed, computer systems have become friendlier to use, making it easier for younger students and inexperienced game designers a chance to program their own games.

Find your why

In this four-and-a-half-day game camp, students will be introduced to what makes a good game, creating rst a layout of a story for their game, making music for their game, practicing basic programming techniques for game design, and then building and playing each other’s games. It will wrap up with a parent showcase on Friday. Snacks will be provided, but students will need to bring their own lunch.
