UW-Green Bay Outreach offers Video Game Programming camps
Students entering grades 8 through 12 in fall 2013 can enroll now for one of two sessions of Video Game Programming Camp, being offered Sunday-Wednesday July 7-10 and Sunday-Wednesday July 14-17, at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, 2420 Nicolet Drive.
Join us as we learn about the world of object-oriented programming and receive an introduction to developing software in a gaming environment. Campers will learn the basic techniques of creating games and will be introduced to object-oriented programming. Campers will learn how to make objects interact with each other through events and will learn how to program some basic games.
