DigiCamp: Online Video Game Development Camp for Girls
July 19, 2021
Still trying to figure out some engaging activities for your kids to do this summer? As part of DigiBC’s commitment to education for youth, they are excited to announce that they've partnered with Under the GUI (UTG) Academy to offer an online camp. It’s a perfect way to empower your kids to become technology makers from the comfort and convenience of being at home!

A student-directed and project-based program where campers will get to create an HTML5 game using PixelPAD and Python. Instructors, Lydia Assion-Nielsen, Mia Gieselmann, and Linda Lee, will tune the curriculum to ensure students are given the opportunity to write code, change gameplay, design levels, update sprites, re-skin their game, and create an app that is uniquely their own. This subsidized program takes place August 9-13, 2021 and is sponsored by IUGO Mobile Entertainment. It will also feature female guest speakers from IUGO who will share their experiences, tips, and secrets from working in the video game industry.
