Virtual Reality/ Esports Apprentice
Week Ten: August 12-16, 2024
Full Day (9am – 4pm)
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: Virtual Reality
Learn the foundations of VR design by creating your own virtual worlds.
Embark on an EPIC adventure in virtual reality! In this cutting-edge class, learn the foundations of VR design by creating your own virtual worlds, exploring simulated environments, crafting 3D experiences, and learning basic programming concepts. At the end of the week, take home your first cardboard VR headset to show friends and family the new worlds you created. VR projects can be viewed on a website or mobile device. Students do not need a mobile device to take the class, but will need access to a mobile device at home. VR projects will be available on a password protected Black Rocket website to share with friends and family.
PM Program: Esports Apprentice – Streamers and Gamers
Learn what it takes to be a superstar!
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.
