Have a daughter, niece or sister who's curious about coding? As part of DigiBC's ongoing commitment to education for youth, we have partnered with UTG Academy and IUGO Mobile Entertainment again to create an online video game development camp for girls that will be held over spring break. This incredible opportunity is open to 8-13 year olds and no previous coding experience is necessary.
The program is student-directed and project-based where campers will get to create an HTML5 game using PixelPAD and Python. UTG Instructors will tune the curriculum to ensure students are given the opportunity to write code, change gameplay, design levels, update sprites, re-skin their game, and create an app that is uniquely their own. This subsidized program is sponsored by IUGO Mobile Entertainment and will also feature female guest speakers from IUGO who will share their experiences, tips, and secrets from working in the video game industry.
DigiBC's DigiCamp was created to give underrepresented youth in the province opportunities to learn skills, build confidence and broaden interest in careers within the creative technology sector. The camps we ran last summer were quite a success, and you can read the full recap report on how those went here.
***Both camps are now sold out***
