Summer camp teaches skills through video games

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Ferris State University in Grand Rapids was recently named one of the top 25 in undergrad programs for digital animation by the Princeton Review.

Ferris has taken the excitement of that award to high school students with their Digital Animation and Game Design summer camp. The unique experience is open to anyone, from beginners to advanced. Participants can go from never having used the software before to creating their own video game by the end. Through the process, they learn a lot of creative problem solving, logic, and the basics of code.

The video game industry is booming, making more money than the film industry. The skills learned at DAGD summer camp can be applied to game design, art, coding, and even architecture.
