NEW: Video Game Design - Day Camp
Friday, August 5 & Saturday, August 6
Do you think video games are awesome? Have you ever wanted to design your own? Become a gaming engineer at Imagination Station as we learn how circuitry and STEM can help us make the perfect game.
Alongside our Extreme Scientists, discover the vast world of game design, learn how it's shaping the future and uncover the endless career possibilities that are available. Using Scratch drag-and-drop coding, budding game designers will learn the basics of coding to create different types of games like platformer and chase games. Day campers will also create their own Makey-Makey controller before testing it out.
Join us as we explore the universe of gaming!
