Students will be learning the skills developers use to build popular websites and apps they use. They will gain the tools to express their ideas creatively and effectively. All courses are project-based and cover an abundance of material. Students design their own projects and execute them with as much guidance and individual attention is needed. This year, students in our computer game design summer camp will be re-wiring their brains and learning to think in a new way. They will start brainstorming project ideas on Day 1 of the camp. The students will begin by learning backwards: how to create common games such as Flappy Bird and Super Mario Bros. (platform games) by breaking it down, piece by piece. This will allow the students to learn the basics of programming and also learn what it takes to make the games they play; in turn, showing them that they can do the same! After, we will be holding a series of workshops each day with time for the students to experiment. They will begin prototyping as soon as they find a medium that they see fit for their project. Each workshop will give them a taste of the computer science field. By giving them the freedom to choose their own projects, they will be learning at their own pace and learning how to utilize resources online/offline in order to self-teach and be an independent student. In short, students will be in charge of their own experiences and their knowledge of computer programming that they can take beyond this camp. Projects in our computer game design summer camp vary by week and cater to the students’ preferences, but they cover a wide range of possibilities from learning to use HTML & CSS to building web applications and game design. Game design focuses on all levels of game creation such as story progression, character development, game play, etc. Some students attend just one session; others attend every single session. Students who come back for multiple sessions continue learning, and working on their projects, without repetition. State-of-the-Art Mac Lab Students have access to programming techniques such as Actionscript 2.0 and Photoshop in a beautiful state of the art Mac lab. This lab, which offers students their own machine, is fantastic. If you like computers and are interested in computer game design summer camp, then this course is a must.
