February Vacation: Feb. 27 - March 3, 2017
9:00 am - 3:30 pm
For Students in grades 6 to 8
Does your child like playing digital games and going on scavenger hunts? In this camp they will make and play both! Campers will join game designer, Kellian Pletcher of Green Door labs to explore SEE with the eye of an interactive designer and then work in groups to prototype, design, build, and release a location-based mobile adventure game.
This camp will emphasize the design/engineering process, teamwork, how to use and give feedback, and problem solving just as you would in an actual game design and production team. Green Door Labs is a Boston-based game design company, campers will use their Edventure Builder online tool. Kellian from Green Door Labs and SEE Staff members will be conducting the activities. All devices and materials will be provided for campers to use on site. Snacks and lunch breaks will be scheduled but food will not be provided.
This camp is sponsored by BEI Net.works
Making it possible to offer this camp for $100 per child
The course is limited to 20 participants.
This high tech classroom in the SEE Science Center offers diverse technology-focused learning opportunities for middle and high school students led by engineers, professors, business owners, scientists and teachers. In the courses students gain the skills to pursue technology careers.
Our state and its business community hopes to encourage students to pursue education in technology fields and inspire the next generation of smart, motivated leaders that allow us to train and educate the future work-force talent.
The most effective way to reach that goal is to introduce students in exciting ways to the disciplines early on in their education careers. We provide hands-on learning opportunities for students much earlier than in high school classes and labs.
