More Information About This Camp
Fortnite: Creating and Coding 3D Games is a summer camp program from Fleming Tech Camps that teaches students how to develop and code their own 3D games using Fortnite Creative Mode. This program is designed for students who have a passion for gaming and an interest in learning how to create their own games. At this summer camp, students will have the opportunity to develop 3D worlds, puzzles, and problems while exploring the process of building 3D game worlds. They will learn about 3D FPS design principles and get an introduction to coding concepts such as variables, collision detection, conditional statements, functions, and loops. One of the learning objectives of the camp is to demonstrate an understanding of variables as a concept in the context of a game. Students will be challenged to create a puzzle in a game environment that incorporates the use of variables. They will also learn about collision detection and be tasked with creating an obstacle course with challenges that incorporate the use of collision detection, events, and triggers. Another key objective is to demonstrate an understanding of conditional statements in the context of a game. Students will create a puzzle in a game environment that incorporates the use of conditional statements. They will also learn about functions and apply this understanding to create a puzzle that incorporates the use of functions. Finally, students will demonstrate an understanding of loops as a computer science concept and apply this understanding to musical composition in the context of a game. This will give students a hands-on opportunity to put their coding skills to the test and create their own unique and challenging games. In conclusion, the Fortnite: Creating and Coding 3D Games summer camp program is a fun and engaging opportunity for students to learn about game development and coding while having a blast creating their own 3D games. With a focus on hands-on learning and real-world applications, this program is a perfect way for students to expand their skills and unleash their creativity.
