Harrisburg University of Science and Technology hosting Summer Game Academy

This sounds like a cool opportunity for kids interested in video games and programming.

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology is taking applications for the Summer Game Academy, which will run July 23 to Aug. 4 at the Center for Advanced Entertainment and Learning Technologies.

The academy is an intensive summer program designed to introduce passionate young game designers and developers to the methods and processes used by professional game makers throughout the world, says a news release.

The program focuses on all aspects of the process, from forming ideas to delivery, the release says.

The program is open to students in grades 9 to 12 wishing to expand their artistic or programming skills and for students interested in video games, interactive simulations, new media or the digital arts.

Class size is limited to 12. The program runs Mondays through Saturdays. For more information about the program or scholarships (I checked online and it appears it costs $950 to participate), contact Charles Palmer at 901-5127.
