Video Game Maker
Cost: $285/week (Full Day)
This is the camp to take for those that want their creativity run wild and create a video game that others want to play. Club SciKidz uses Fusion 2.5 from Clickteam to teach campers how to build two-dimensional video games. This software provides an easy-to-use game-authoring environment that allows campers to create many types of computer games, screen savers, and other applications.
Campers will get started with a Space Shooter Game where they learn how to create moving backgrounds, add scores and lives, design instructions and titles, create waves of enemies, and transition screens. Later in the week, campers will learn how to create Maze and Platform Games.
