3-Day Game Developer Camp (Physical Class)

The gaming industry is one of the most profitable industries in the 21st century. The industry was worth $179.7 billion in 2020; more than the movie and music industries combined. In this programme, students will be introduced to the basic precepts of game development and have a chance to build 3 simple games, each on a different hardware/software platform, per day of the camp. They will be exploring the fundamental concepts of coding and how it aligns with the game development process such as establishing win conditions, setting constraints and ramping up difficulty in a game.

Camp Details

Duration

9am – 12:30pm or 1.30 – 5pm (inclusive of a 30-min tea break)

Age 9 Years and above
Price $350
To Bring: Please bring along a laptop for all 3 days of the camp.



*Camps will only start with a minimum enrolment of 3 participants.

The game is yours to create.

On Day 1, student will be introduced to the Micro:bit and its different components and sensors. They will learn basic coding principles and experience how the microcontroller works with robotics. Students will create a simple game with the Micro:bit and program their robot to complete a challenge.


On Day 2, students will be given insight into Virtual Reality (VR) and its various applications in the 21st century. They will learn about algorithms and take a deep dive into computational thinking concepts. The highlight of the day will be creating a VR adventure game where they can create their own obstacle courses amidst various 3D landscape scenes designed by themselves.


On Day 3, students will try their hands on syntax-based coding through JavaScript. They will learn to use code to perform programs and understand the difference between good code and bad code. They will then develop mathematical games to make complex calculations, culminating in the creation of a dice game that will teach them about logic flow.

FAQ

Our holiday camps are suitable for beginners who have no prior knowledge or experience in technology-related courses. Even if your child has had prior knowledge or experience, he or she will still find our holiday camps refreshing due to the sheer variety of platforms we cover and the thematic approach we employ which makes every camp different and new.

No, your child’s lunch is not included in the camp fees. Light snacks and drinks will be provided for your child as we will be taking short breaks in between. Do let us know if your child has any food allergies for us to take note.

He was intrigued by how technology could influence a robot and kept raving about the fun he had at this class.
