For campers entering grades 6-9

Two great programs this week with our partner, Black Rocket.  We’ll do one program in the morning, and one in the afternoon- a full day of learning and fun! 

AM Program: Smash Brawler: Make Your Own Platform Fighter Game!

If you love games like Super Smash Bros™, you will love this class! Using professional development software, customize your own 2D brawler game and configure your own characters. Learn how to balance multiplayer gameplay by modifying variables & editing scripts. Then challenge your classmates to compete on the platform level you designed. Smash Brawler games will be available on a password protected Black Rocket website to share with friends and family.

Pm Program: Esports Apprentice – Streamers and Gamers

Whether you want to be the next pro gamer, streamer, or gamecaster this course will teach you the basics to get started! No longer just a hobby, esports is the fastest-growing career for the next generation. Over 400 million people watched YouTube videos and Twitch streams of video game competitions this year alone! In this course, students will develop game-play skills and compete using Black Rocket’s Esports games and apps, learn how to produce commentary for live tournaments, use professional streaming software, and most importantly practice online safety. Student recordings will be available on a password protected website to share with friends and family. Videos will not be broadcast publicly but will be shared with all students in the class.
