For 2012, iD is introducing new courses on how to create iPhone games.
Campbell, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
Students in Providence and throughout Rhode Island who wish to create games for the iPhone® and iPad® this summer need travel no further than Brown University. iD Tech Camps will host Brown summer camps with new courses “Game Design for iPhone® & iPad® I” and “Game Design for iPhone® & iPad® II.”
These popular Providence summer camps feature weeklong, day and overnight programs for ages 7-17. Although this is iD’s sixth season of hosting programs at Brown, the curriculum is updated each year and there are always new choices for technology-minded students. For 2012, iD is introducing new courses on how to create iPhone® games.
The courses are segmented by age, with “Game Design for iPhone® & iPad® I” for ages 10-12 and “Game Design for iPhone® & iPad® II” for ages 13-16. Students will use GameSalad® software to create arcade style video games. The simple drag-and-drop toolset allows students with no programming backgrounds to make their own games from existing libraries of established behaviors and graphics. Each course culminates in a final project showcasing the student’s new skills, and students can even take home their finished games to share with friends.
Other topics offered at iD’s Brown camps include video game design and programming in C++ and Java. All classes have a maximum of eight students per instructor, allowing for personalized instruction. Adult-only teachers customize the module style curriculum to each student’s abilities, and students can take several weeks of classes to build on their skills.
Aside from these Rhode Island summer camps, iD offers summer technology camps at 60+ university campuses nationwide. Students can take the same courses and learn essential technology skills at campuses including Stanford, Princeton, UCLA, NYU, Vassar, Amherst, UNLV, the University of New Mexico, and more.
