Descriptions

Beta Masters for Ages 12-15
Imagine a small indie game studio that has 5 days to pitch, design and build a new video game. Following a real-world production cycle, YHA Beta Masters work in teams to develop an innovative game prototype from conception to completion. Campers will use the Stencyl game engine to take their computational learning to the next level, creating original graphics and bringing them to life with Haxe coding. The program culminates with a beta release party in which friends and family act as investors.

Tuition includes:

  • Agent Kit (T-shirt, workbook, and diploma)
  • 6:1 student-to-instructor ratio

 

What your child will learn at YHA:

  • The core concepts of computer programming and video game design
  • How to build a technical journal
  • Strategies for efficient collaboration, critical thinking and problem-solving
  • Best practices for public speaking—ability to pitch and present work
  • Exploration of important local and global issues

 

“Seeing the kids present their work with confidence and new knowledge at the end of just one week solidified the excellence of the program.”
– Stefani H, Richmond, VT
