The Games in Education Symposium is proud to announce the Teen Game Design Workshop!
FREE! August 11-15, 2014
9am – 3pm
Troy Middle School
Register by: June 15 

Teen Game Design Workshop is a free weeklong day camp for high school boys and girls aged 14-17 with an interest in technology, although no programming experience is required! The primary goals of the programming camp are to introduce and teach students programming essentials and foster a love of math and sciences. This free camp is open to teens in the upstate region with the recommendation from a teacher, guidance counselor or community leader.

Hosted at Troy Middle School we are currently looking for young adults who would be excited to attend this week-long summer experience. Games in Education is a multi-day symposium which focuses on the topic of using video games to supplement and inspire in-classroom education, and has been running since 2007!

Throughout the week professionals in science and technology fields will give talks and demos that explain how computers are used every day. Students are given a choice between two experiences where participants learn how to use programming to create interesting projects, culminating in a final showcase day.

In order to provide ample opportunity for participation we are looking to members of the community to nominate students for this free camp. Our registration flyer which contains everything needed to register can be found here. We are interested in hearing from you please visit us at http://gamesineducation.org/TeenGameWorkshop/ to learn more.
