EDGE - Video Game Development Summer Camp 2017

July 2017: The APSU Department of Computer Science and Information Technology, lead by Dr. James Church, hosted the EDGE (Educational Developing Games Experience) Summer Camp for local high school students.

The camp, sponsored by GOOGLE, allowed participants to learn about how video games are made free of charge. 37 camp participants made prototypes of classic game types, such as arcade, platformer, puzzle, and 3D open world games using the Unity 3D framework in the C# programming language.

We would like to thank GOOGLE for the generous donation, and all the parties involved for making this camp a valuable experience for our future computer scientists / IT professionals.
