Is your son or daughter an aspiring “gamer” or computer programmer? The Idaho Digital Learning Academy and GoGo Labs have teamed up to offer a six-week, online camp called Idaho Teen GameLab. The camp promotes exploration of the digital game design career path for middle and high school students of all skills levels.
Idaho Teen GameLab engages students in their own realm—a virtual, quest-based platform. Students will collaborate in virtual worlds to plan and build civilizations, create personalized games, and test and provide feedback on fellow developers’ games.
“Ninety-nine percent of teens play video games,” said Lisa Dawley, GoGo Labs CEO and Founder. “GoGo Labs is focused on engaging students and inspiring teachers through gamified learning opportunities, and what could be more interesting than designing the games themselves?”
Space is limited to 200 students, so don’t delay! Registration opens February 5, 2014. For more information, visit http://idahoteengamelab.org/.
