Namely, in two terms during the summer holidays, students of upper grades of primary schools will be able to learn to make their own video game during their seven days in the camp. The world of video games, adventures in nature, robots, state-of-the-art technology, Slavonian food, new friendships and memories for a lifetime, is what this unique summer gaming camp offers.
“We are aware of the fact that children spend most of their time in front of a computer playing video games during the summer holidays, so we decided to organize a camp and allow them to spend time in front of the screen learning to produce video games,” the organizers said.
According to the announcement, the camp will operate in two terms, from July 3 to 7, and August 21 to 28. The stay was organized in the dormitory of the Novljan high school, while classes will be held in the incubator PISMO.
“We provided 24-hour supervision for the participants, three cooked meals and one healthy snack in the break between lectures. Each day will start with a morning exercise, continue with classes lasting four hours, and after the afternoon break every day, various activities are prepared for the participants. They will get acquainted with the state-of-the-art technology of the PISMO incubator, in the Social Innovation Incubator they will learn to record, edit and stream content, and in stem workshops they will learn about microbits and robotics. They will also program nature, but without computers and mobile phones in the scout camp DUPIN, and time is left for a full day trip to the Lonjsko Polje Nature Park, “said Ivana Matanović.
According to the prefect Celjak, the story that the Sisak-Moslavina County is building through the gaming center in the PISMO incubator is once again offering some new content. A summer gaming camp for children is just a confirmation of that.
“The gaming industry brings economic progress to the whole society and that is why we are pleased with the number of newly opened companies in our county in 2021, which is 28% higher than the previous year. Some of these 319 start-ups are gaming companies and that is why it is important to educate children from an early age not only to be consumers but to see their opportunity in the production of video games. Sisak-Moslavina County supports this camp and is looking forward to the fact that in addition to more than 200 adults who have been educated in recent years in the incubator PISMO, now have the opportunity to learn and small gamedeveloperi, “said Prefect Ivan Celjak.
