For students looking to further advance their skills, this 5-day program builds on the learning experience from our CreatingIDEAS program. Expanding the competencies that were mastered during CreatingIDEAS, this advanced program offers students exposure into uncharted territory where they will learn a new set of skills.

From concept design through delivering a game to market, these 5 days will take students on a journey to understand the career opportunities and the roles involved within the rapidly growing and globally competitive gaming industry. This program is more than just learning to create “cool” games. It expands a student’s mind to realize the opportunities that surround the excitement of gaming throughout many industries across STEAM today and beyond. 

Leveraging Unity, the teams will use design thinking to create a video game which must follow the rubric guidelines outlining the competencies students are required to demonstrate. They must ensure the game design supports solving a problem that is impactful to our lives in positive ways. Each team will present a final 2-3 minute video trailer and presentation of their game design. Teams must meet timelines for the deliverables, work collaboratively, and demonstrate good digital citizenship at all times. Industry experts will judge the final projects, and the teams will compete for exciting prizes.
