Creative Game Design with Bloxels
Calling all future writers, artists, designers, and game developers! Students in this collaborative class enjoy storyboarding their games with character, enemy, and plot development.
Using Bloxels, they will turn their interactive stories and physical creations into a digital video game. They will use Bloxels game board and blocks to create the characters, levels, and other art for their games.
They capture all their creations using the Bloxels App, where they edit and customize everything - what it looks like and how elements interact and behave, which turns it all into a fun playable game on the tablet.
The Theme Park Mania: MinecraftEDU
This camp is designed to introduce students to the concepts of civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and the Engineering Design Process.
Students will design simulation roller coasters and other amusement park attractions in Minecraft making them run as autonomously as possible.
Our camps give students a meaningful, hands-on introduction to the fundamentals of technology and design-thinking methodology; challenging them to collaborate with their fellow campers to create solutions to real-world problems.
Juniors Camps (Ages 4- 7)
Agent of Travel
Pack your bags and let's map out our trip around the world!
Over 100 years ago, airplanes had not even made their first flight, yet today we can fly to the other side of the world in 12 hours! Over the next five days, teams will work together to see who can travel the farthest around the world.
This trip around the world will require students to design their very own cars, planes, and even a ROCKET!
Our camps give students a meaningful, hands-on introduction to the fundamentals of engineering and design-thinking methodology; challenging them to collaborate with their fellow campers to create solutions to real-world problems.
