If you are a 7th, 8th or 9th grade student who wants to know what it takes to make a game—this is the program for you!
This exciting six-day synchronous program offers a curriculum inspired by Champlain College’s Game Academy Level One pre-college program. This program is specifically designed for students in grades seven to nine who are eager to get started in the field of game development. Introduction to Game Development will be taught by the same world-class faculty who teach our pre-college program. Just like in our pre-college programs, students will be introduced to all aspects of game development and will also work on a team to make a game prototype.
Featuring six hours of synchronous instruction by Champlain College faculty every day, our curriculum allows students to build community and to experience the collaborative teamwork required on a game development team.
The program also includes time each day for students to relax with new friends through planned online evening activities.
