URGENT: WE NEED 10 CAMPERS TO SECURE THE CAMP!!!! SIGN UP TODAY!


Van Alstyne ISD in partnership with Region 10 Education Service Center and Youth Digital is offering 2 Digital Youth Camps this summer for students age 10 -16.

Youth Digital empowers kids and teens to be digital creators, designers, animators, programmers and developers. The course work provides campers a comprehensive learning experience that is amazingly fun, highly interactive and extremely effective. Campers watch videos, respond to questions, earn badges, and complete challenging assignments and quizzes as they step toward mastering critical technology skills and professional-level software. Computers are provided at the camp site. No prior programming or design experience is necessary. Youth Digital summer camp courses are designed to make learning new digital skills fun and effective. Campers will be guided through every step, from downloading the software to submitting your final project.

The 1st camp is called: Learn Java with Minecraft. Students will learn the programming language of Java while having fun playing Minecraft.

The 2nd camp is called: 3-D Game Design and students will learn to create their own game.
