Full Sail University has announced it will co-present full day game design classes for seventh, eighth, and ninth grade students this summer at the Orlando Science Center as part of its School Break Camps Program. Officials from the Science Center and Full Sail say the program is geared toward young adults who are interested in game design as a future career or just for fun. Full Sail University instructors will teach each student how to create their own game with characters and graphics of their choice. Students will work in teams to build their unique games, which will be presented as a final project on the Full Sail University campus on August 15 in the Entertainment Business Auditorium. The classes will run August 11–15 from 9 a.m. until 4:15. Steve VanZandt is course director for the game development program at Full Sail. “Watching the imagination of each child translated into a game that can be played and presented is a rewarding and memorable experience,” he said in a press release. “Being a participant in the game design class gives the children a chance to get a taste of what it is really like to be a mastermind behind the games they love to play.” Parents looking for more information can contact the Orlando Science Center through its web site, or on (407) 514-2112.
