Summer Camp Week 6 | Advanced Programming & Game Dev Lab


This camp is for children age 13+ that have a solid foundation and strong interest in creating their own game script or applying skills towards real world programming applications. This camp follows a project-based approach to understanding the basics of programming and its role in game development or software development.  The class will expose students to advanced coding languages, such as Python, Lua, Unity, JavaScript or TypeScript to practice programming fundamentals.  

Example activities:
  • Use programming logic to create gameplay mechanics, and develop their own video game script with Lua or Unity. 
  • Use the Python programming language to solve solutions to participant-identified problems. Students experience a brainstorming session to establish a real-world problem, and scoping for a successful outcome within the constraints of the time and resources available during the camp.  Participants learn about Big Data techniques for sourcing internet and sensor based data. Students are also introduced to data normalization, and visualization techniques for identifying patterns and analysis. The outcomes are programs that can respond to real-time data flows and changes, and create interactive interfaces to make the data useful.
  • Students will explore the fascinating world of Virtual Reality through hands-on building programming interactive 3D games and experiences. As advanced coders, you will learn to add interactions and animations with CoBlocks, JavaScript or TypeScript coding.
