YouTube Let's Plays: Video Capture
Create your own "Let's Play" video! Campers make the gaming videos of their dreams, learning critical video production skills along the way. Campers learn to script, direct and edit video footage for fun, action-packed gaming videos, using streaming software to capture screen footage. Campers leave with YouTube-ready content and some brand new production skills!
YouTube Let's Plays: Motion Graphics
Create an epic intro to a video! In this camp, campers will learn the challenging skill of motion graphics, using software to digitally alter text and more to create advanced, customized clips. This is a skill used universally in branding and design; great for young producers and those interested in making YouTube videos!
Pixel Academy uses a holistic, hands-on approach to inspire and empower kids to understand and create with digital technology all year round. We don't just funnel kids through impersonal, cookie-cutter classes and forget about them; all of our instruction is project-based, every participant's project is unique, and our passion for sharing digital tech skills doesn't expire at the end of the summer. Our programs empower kids to explore the STEM skills that will define their world and to apply them to exciting creative projects across multiple disciplines.
Each CAMP/pixel topic is designed to facilitate fundamental understanding of relevant, 21st-century STEM skills through fun, hands-on learning. Our workshops are infused with inquiry-based activities and exercises so each camper is not only introduced to these concepts but can feel ownership over them and understand why they're important. We use inherently cool vehicles (like Minecraft and YouTube) to teach otherwise intimidating skills (like coding in Java and online safety.) Campers leave CAMP/pixel with a finished project of their own creation and a practiced ability to apply digital tech skills in creative ways.
