LASER-TEC Hosts Game Programming Bootcamp

September 11, 2019 Kelly Hogan

Students ages 12 to 17 have the unique and unparalleled opportunity to learn about game programming at the upcoming Coding with Arduino Bootcamp hosted by LASER-TEC at Indian River State College (IRSC). The Arduino Bootcamp starts November 6 and meets weekly through December 18.

Students participate in an Arduino Bootcamp on the IRSC Main Campus in Fort Pierce.

Arduino Bootcamp students will journey into a world where C++ and Java collide. Under the guidance of educators who are well-versed in electronics, programming and inquiry-based education, students will learn to develop electronic circuits to control software. They will engage in activities such as turning retro games into real-life functioning models; replicating theme songs from retro games; producing a virtual Etch-A-Sketch; creating a rotating SONAR device that resembles technology used on submarines; forming an electronic circuit that senses and reproduces color; and designing a game similar to the classic arcade game, Arkanoid.

The Coding with Arduino Bootcamp takes place on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. from November 6 through December 18 in the Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship on the IRSC Main Campus at 3209 Virginia Avenue in Fort Pierce. Cost for the Bootcamp is $225 and includes a customized, complimentary kit valued at $100, which participants take home.
