Half Day Coding/ Game Design + Half Day Hands-On Engineering

Video games are everywhere and in almost every form you can imagine!

Arkansas Johnson, the Action Archeologist, is at it again! In Electronic Game Design: Temple Escape!, we will create our own version of a platform game that is set in an ancient, abandoned temple that will require all of Arkansas’s skills to make it out alive! We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to outline the rules of play and characters for our game. Then, we will use coding software to bring our storyboard to life. In the other half of the day, campers will learn about core knowledge engineering and do hands-on activities for Mechanical, Civil & Aerospace Engineering.
