Description

Ross is out yet again but Will has more details about exciting the Gaming Bootcamp events happening around Sioux Falls and the state.

Native American Gaming Bootcamp:

3-day camps and free
Funded by AT&T, huge thanks to them
Have six planned around the state; Sioux Falls, Chamberlain, Mission, still planning a few
Bobby, our instructor, brings a lot of Native culture into the program
Gaming Bootcamps in Sioux Falls:

Over 35 kids joined us this summer and 4 mentors or helpers
Built 7 games in 5-days. Most games allow the kids to explore and create
Custom Doodle Jump this year, huge success
Always have a handful of kids who build their own custom games
Host onsite at Raven and DocuTAP; great being on location, the kids love it
Take-away Lessons:​​​​​​​
We want kids to learn and understand the basics of coding.
It’s not just a “play games” camp even though I could easily host “play games” camps all-day long!
amazed as how well the kids understand writing code and the creativity. We really need to do a better job allowing kids to learn and explore.
