Becker College, ranked number five worldwide by the Princeton Review for computer game design, is again holding their Video Game Summer Studio for high school students. My son attended this program last summer and said it was the best two weeks of his life! He was surrounded by peers with similar interests and the classes were taught by great teachers.
Becker's Video Game Summer Studio is a two-week residential program where students live, learn and play together. The program is an introduction to all aspects of game development including game design, game art and animation, motion capture, programming, sound, testing and production. Students will work in small groups, as part of a development team, and collaborate to build an original game. Students will have a chance to meet professional game developers at companies such as Petricore Games. At the culmination of the program, students will showcase their new game and discuss the programs and processes they used during game development.
The program will be held on the Worcester, Mass. campus for students grades 9-12. Registration deadline, June 10, 2017.
Students who attend the Summer Game Studio can qualify to receive a $5,000 annual scholarship if they go on to enroll full-time in Becker College's Bachelor of Arts Interactive Media Design Program. See Becker College's website for scholarship details.
