3D Game Programming with Unity (Age 12+)

2017 unity 7

CAMP OVERVIEW

Language: English

What’s better than playing a game? Creating your own. What’s better than creating your own game? Making your own 3D game!

From Pixar movies to Minecraft, from 3D printing to virtual / augmented reality, 3D technologies are permeating our lives.

This generation of kids and teens are 3D natives, from 3D movies to games. By teaching them the programming concepts behind 3D computer programs, this course empowers them to become creators of 3D technologies.

In this course, we first provide a gentle introduction to 3D modeling using Blender, a professional 3D design tool. Students gain hands-on experience in 3D geometry and create fun 3D objects. Using these custom objects created in Blender, students are then introduced to the programming language C# to program their own 3D world in Unity.

CAMP HIGHLIGHTS

8:1 Ratio Guarantee

We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.

Personalized Learning

Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.

Hands-on Project-based Learning

First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.

Follow on Curriculum for Immersed Learning

What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
