Engineering For Kids of Phoenix Metro Summer Camp @ Phoenix Coding Academy: Shape Your World with AR and Creative Storytelling Through Video Game Design (Grades 3- 8)

AR is the hottest consumer tech on the market today and the potential is limitless.

Hold and manipulate a glowing digital landscape in your hands, program a custom game to be played simply by turning your fist, and apply your imagination to create something never seen before! Our instructors will teach concepts like programming, digital literacy, and game design for a balanced camp experience. Using our kid-friendly headsets and standalone Android devices, we’ll dive in and take the invigorating plunge into an augmented world of wonder and creativity!

PM Session: Creative Storytelling through Video Game Design

Mario, Master Chief, and Sonic the Hedgehog; the best games have the best characters! Using top-down world-building techniques, campers will embark on a STEAM journey to create backstories for characters, map out a plot, and incorporate elements of their stories into their own video games for a wholly immersive gaming experience. They’ll dial in the details of their game worlds, squash those programming bugs, and pitch their games to the class to gain real-world video game design experience!
