OCEAN COUTY – More than 20 different virtual STEAM camps will be offered to kids this summer thanks to Ocean County College’s Jay and Linda Grunin Center for the Arts and Black Rocket.
Black Rocket has been designing and offering tech-themed programs to summer camps, recreation centers, schools and colleges for nearly 20 years.
Some topics students can choose from include: coding, game design, eSports, virtual reality and more. Sign up for classes like 3D Game Design with Unity, where they create their own video games using Unity, an industry-grade design software, or App Attack! in which students explore the world of web-based mobile apps using a specialized app and game development tool.
Some other classes are App.IO: Make Your First Multiplayer App!, where students design their own multiplayer experience and learn to code their own app; Battle Royale: Make Your First Fortnite Style Video Game, where students use professional 3D game development software to build games; and Code Your Own Adventure – Interactive Storytelling! that lets students watch the characters in their imagination come to life in a course that blends classic storytelling with animation techniques and coding.
Top instructors will be teaching the camps along with small break-out sessions with coaches. Visit grunincenter.org/event/virtual-steam-camps for more information on each course, including age and skill levels, pricing and dates.
