DigiCamp: Summer 2023
Online Video Game Development Coding Camp for Girls
Have a daughter, niece or sister who's curious about coding? As part of DigiBC's ongoing commitment to education for youth, we have partnered with UTG Academy and IUGO Mobile Entertainment again to create this online video game development focused coding camp for girls that will be held over the summer.
This incredible opportunity is open to 8-13 year olds and is suitable for a wide range of novice and beginner coders (no previous experience is necessary). Additionally, a unique and new curriculum is implemented each year to build a camp experience that accommodates the skills and creative goals for every participant's project ideas — more info below for returning campers from previous years!
The week-long session is project-based, and campers will create a HTML5 game using PixelPAD and Python. For this year's curriculum, experienced UTG instructors will lead the class through the design and development of the iconic game, Flappy Bird. Students will then get to write code, customize gameplay features, update sprites, re-skin their game, and create a version that is uniquely their own. 🎮

ℹ️ What if a student has already taken one of the previous camps in 2021 or 2022?
The UTG team has modified this year's curriculum to focus on the development of the well known game, Flappy Bird. Returning campers will get to work on a brand-new creation compatible with a range of beginner and novice levels, ensuring a novel experience.
