Youth Digital, the leading technology education organization for youth ages 8-14, today announced the launch of 3D Game Development 1, an engaging online course that teaches kids how to develop their own video games using the industry leading Unity® game engine.
DURHAM, NC (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 16, 2016
This course gives students the freedom to fully realize their game vision using the professional Unity® game engine. Kids will learn to code in C#, and throughout the course they will be taught industry-standard coding and design skills. Students have full control of the story; they can code their own quests, design multiple levels, puzzles, and enemies. At the end of the course, students will have a complete video game to share with friends and family.
Course highlights include the following:
- Learn Unity® – an industry-standard tool for video game development and the platform for many popular titles like Pokémon Go® and Temple Run®
- Learn C# – a professional programming language – and career-ready best practices
“Because Unity® is one of the most widely-used professional game engines in the Industry, there is no limit to what our kids can do after taking this course,” said Justin Richards, CEO and Founder of Youth Digital. “A lot of people don’t think kids as young as eight or even ten can learn to use tools like this, but they can learn anything if they’re excited enough about what they’re making. We give them the fundamentals, but our students always take the skills we give them and run with them, so we can’t wait to see what they go on to do with Unity®.”
The 12-month subscription (Approximately $~21/month, paid annually at $249.99) includes more than 30 hours of learning, 1 year of course access, support from online teachers, self-paced and project-based curriculum, interactive quizzes and challenges, final project, and a personalized evaluation of their final project.
