HARRISBURG, Pa. – Harrisburg University of Science and Technology is offering a summer camp that immerses high school students in real-world digital gaming design.
The two-week SpacEscape summer camp, set for July 12-23, will teach game assets creation, game design and development through a game studio experience.
SpacEscape is a problem-solving mobile game created by students and faculty at Harrisburg University. The game provides students an opportunity to learn about space science while practicing their problem-solving skills.
In this camp, students in grades 9-12 will learn how to work with a game engine, version control, and develop problem-solving skills in a team setting. Students will also practice creativity, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration in the team while having an enjoyable experience.
The goal of this camp is to provide students with the hands-on learning opportunity to apply their game design and development interests, skills, and knowledge toward a real-world product.
Interested students should have a strong interest in game development and graphic design. Due to the team orientation of the camp, space will be limited. Interested students will need to complete a pre-camp survey prior to selection. To apply for the SpacEscape camp and for more information, visit this Link.
