Game Programming – Remote
Have you ever wished you knew how to program, but had no clue where to start? This introductory course will provide students with an understanding of game programming. It will explore themes and concepts of the fundamental principles of game programming. Through this exploration students will develop a basic foundation and understanding of code/coding, and gain confidence in their ability to code small programs. This course will use Unity 3D, C+ programming language and Microsoft Visual Studio.
7 Thurs., Sept. 8-Oct. 20, 6:30-8:30 pm.

Game Design – Remote
We play games on consoles, PCs, and mobile devices but did you ever wonder how to build an interactive game? The gaming industry is an exciting, burgeoning field that requires both technical ability and creativity. Students will be designing and programming games and learning gaming concepts. Students will construct games, design characters, build terrains, and interactive user experiences using the program Unity 3D.
7 Wed., Sept. 14-Oct. 26, 6:30-8:30 pm.

Augmented, Virtual & Mixed Reality – In-person
Students will explore the endless possibilities of augmented reality, virtual reality, mixed reality and immersive computing technologies. Students will be exposed to the technical and experiential design foundation required for the implementation of immersive environments in current and future virtual, augmented and mixed reality platforms. Students will be active participants in designing their immersive worlds using the program Unity 3D. 

7 Thurs., Oct. 27-Dec. 15 (skip 11/24), 6:30-8:30 pm. 

Digital 3D Modeling – Remote
In this course, we will explore the world of digital 3D modeling using the program Blender. Over the last four decades DCC (Digital Content Creation) programs have become sophisticated, friendly to use, and accessible. This is a foundation course in digital 3D modeling. This course will cover an extensive range of modeling techniques and build a strong foundation for continued work in digital 3D modeling. Students will complete modeling exercises and create original works of their own design.
7 Wed., Nov. 2-Dec. 21 (skip 11/23), 6:30-8:30 pm. 

Independent Studio – In-person
This studio course presents a platform for students to continue exploring diverse possibilities and various processes of using digital media to create interactive works.
