Save the date! In 2021 GLOWS is expanding our popular youth summer camps to year round opportunities, and we’re starting with video game design! If you missed out on the Game Design with VR Camp we hosted over the summer you’re in luck because we’re bringing it back with an advanced level offering as well.

Virtual Design I – Game Design with Virtual Reality
Learn the basics of 3D design, with engaging software Cospaces, and combine that with block based coding to bring your environment to life. You will play, test,share and remix your work with others to experience the design cycle a real game would go through and finish camp having completed a Virtual Reality Escape Room video game!

Virtual Design II – Game Design with Virtual Reality
This camp is an extension from Virtual Design 1, where the learners will build on level 1 skills and go deeper into the CoSpaces engine! You’ll explore game design with more complex scripts that will add a new layer of immersion and interaction to your game. Guiding you through intermediate code creation you’ll explore how to trigger events in your game like character conversations as well as develop 3D modeling skills to make your artwork shine!
