Workshops | 10-12th Grade Workshops
Do you enjoy games like Call of Duty, Halo, and Counter Strike? Have you thought about the game world that you play in or how these environments came to be? Explore the world of 3D environments while creating a level for the popular computer game Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO). Students enrolling in this class will learn about the Source Engine and its level editor Hammer. Some topics covered include: BSP geometry, props, scripting, lighting, skyboxes, and optimization. By the end of the workshop, students will have the knowledge and skill set to create beautiful, compelling, and fun environments. (We will provide temporary Steam accounts with the game for use in the classroom. By registering you for this workshop, your parents understand that CS:GO is a first-person shooter game, and consent to have you exposed to its simulated violence within the academic context of this workshop).

Unity 3D is a powerful creation tool used by companies today for making real games and simulations in 3D. Learn how to use Unity's easy drag and drop component interface, then add scripting to the elements of your world to bring your creation to life! Your finished project can be published to the web, desktop or even mobile platforms! You will learn basic programming skills, or build upon the ones you already have. You can even download Unity3D's free version to continue your creations or start new ones after the workshop ends.
