UME Academy teaches elementary school students how to think, design, and problem solve by using technology to create video games. With a focus on computational thinking skills, these young game makers learn how to take big ideas and turn them into playable experiences. Through game design, students transition from consumer to creator as they take on the roles of artist, engineer, producer, and play tester. Founded by Daniel Roizman and Jean Mistrot, who both have extensive experience in visual effects, animation, software and video game development, UME’s programs have been created to engage kids through a medium that they are passionate about.
UME Academy has a number of upcoming game design camps that will be held over spring break in March. These would be ideal for 9-12 year olds and DigiBC members can take advantage of an exclusive 10% discount (applicable to camps held at BCIT).
