If you can’t beat them, join them. From a very long time, research tells us that the video games we play influence our behaviour. While such claims had no effect on a child’s addiction, we came up with something even better. Why can’t we use this fascinating topic of video games which would help the kids rather than disrupt their development? STEM Champ is bringing a summer camp that will allow the kids to work with video games technology and learn first-hand about what goes into the game!
Students would learn to think critically about video games, considering some of the important social, psychological, and ethical issues and controversies surrounding them. Then, students will look at how games are designed, engineered and will help students explore careers in programming, graphic arts and illustration, production, and writing. Throughout the course, students will develop and explore their own skills and aptitudes by practicing programming, comparing hardware, and learning about the application of physics in game design. Students will consider the educational applications of games, by practicing and analysing games that require fiscal management, smart urban planning, diplomacy (whether among neighbours, or nations), military management, engineering, storytelling, and long-term and big-picture strategizing. Finally, students will design and present their own games, then exchange feedback with other students.
If playing a game makes your kid a pro, then understanding how to make one makes your child a prodigy! Won’t it be just great to design your own video games characters? Well you get a chance to remove all flaws from your Player 1 and be the Alpha of your own game. Just make sure to tell us all your cheat codes! See you at STEM camp!
