June 4-8 (Camp closed)

All-Day Camp (9am-4pm) – 5 full days:

Learn from the pros! This full-day lab is taught by programmers from Sandia National Laboratories. Video game designers use all of the essentials of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) along with the Arts. Use the same tools adopted by professionals as you apply basic physics and computer science, combined with visual design and storytelling, to invent and build your own computer game.
