ProjectFUN Fall/Spring Weekend Workshops take place on Saturdays over two three-week sessions.
Weekend Workshops offer students the opportunity to take some of our most popular Summer Workshops, or to study a concentrated topic within art, game design and development, programming, engineering, or music and sound over a series of Saturdays during the school year. These workshops are a perfect way for both new and returning students to continue learning, as well as complete prerequisites before attending more advanced ProjectFUN workshops in the summer. This is a great program for students both new and returning!
Students must be currently in the indicated grade range (grades 1-3 for Young Explorers Workshops, grades 4-7 for Junior Workshops, or grades 8-12 for Teen Workshops).
Duration: 3 weeks
Hours: Saturdays, 9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Subjects: Video Game Programming, Art and Animation, Game and Web Design.
Explorers Weekend Workshops
Young Explorers Workshops teach young students the basic principles of art and technology as they create their own rudimentary video games, animations, robotics, and more. Whether your child figures out every trick in a particular video game, expresses creativity through arts and crafts, or just wants to know how things work, these workshops are sure to inspire!
Juniors Weekend Workshops
Junior Workshops are exploratory workshops for students in Grades 4–7. These workshops introduce students to topics in video game programming, game design, art and animation, engineering, and music and sound design.
Teens Weekend Workshops
DigiPen’s workshops for students in Grades 8–12 cover a range of video game programming, game design, art and animation, engineering, and music and sound design topics. Workshops provide a mixture of classroom instruction in the academic fundamentals of each field and hands-on team projects where students create their own games, animations, robotic cars, and more.
