Class Experience

LEGOs are amazing! What if you could bring them to life by creating online LEGO mini games? If that sounds awesome, this camp is for you!

Over the course of the week, you’ll learn to use Unity, an industry-standard game design platform, and Bricklink Studio to create your own LEGO minigames.

You’ll prototype games using the LEGO Microgame. You’ll also design characters using 3d modeling. And you’ll learn how to work collaboratively across virtual platforms.

You’ll be able to share your games with other campers, try out the ones they’re creating, and give and receive feedback. You’ll also be able to share your games with friends and family.

Loved:

Structured activities and the videos.

Improvements:

I feel the instructor did not have a great handle on motivating or redirecting boys in this age group. There was more independent work time and less structured tasks. Also it seemed that the skill level should have been narrowed down to reduce the gap. Students who were more experienced were left waiting around for students who were struggling a large part of the day.

Loved:

I loved that my son was inspired to create after viewing different cities.

Improvements:

I did not like the links to online gaming. There are a lot of parents who still do not let their children play online games at this age. My son had access to other games not recommended by the instructor as well with the links.
