Intro to Computer Coding through Arcade Game Design Camp

Computer Coding Camp caters to the beginners and to those with some experience by offering a two-week option. Both weeks are stand-alone experiences, so come for one, or both.
In the first week, students learn and review fundamental computer programming concepts by building their own arcade game, including object-oriented coding / event-driven processing (like most modern platforms) and produce a working stand-alone product. The group will collectively build a game app archetype (a homage to an arcade classic) chosen for its accessibility and coding opportunities.  Participants will be supported and encouraged while developing their own individual “spin” on the mentor-directed project.
In week two, we explore the basics of other game types: block-puzzles, shooting gallery, the platform world (optionally with scrolling screens), vector graphic concepts/intro to 3D graphics, and 2.5D isometric constructs.  Rather than a fully developed mentor-directed app, participants will assemble a starter toolkit for building their own more advanced creations.
A real benefit from the class will be the sense of accomplishment that comes only from the completion of a task requiring hours of focused effort – along with the advantages of working with peers in reaching that goal.
Participants will need a Windows PC (XP, Vista, 7/8/10) and we provide the (open license) software. A limited number of laptops can be provided for in-house work for free, but students in that case should provide their own USB stick/thumb drive for maintaining projects (only ~64 MB will be used, at most).
For Ages 12-18
