Game Development with Unity Boot Camps
For Year 9 to Year 12 students
Ever wanted to learn how to use a professional game engine?
Unity 3D is a powerful, easy to learn game engine that is very flexible and well supported. Unity supports almost every platform and has a huge number of games made with it. Unity has a free version with loads of functionality allowing anyone to use it. Learning Unity is a great first step into learning how to use big game engines.
MacICT is now offering student boot camp excursions in the use of the Unity software. The course uses some pre-made assets so that we can quickly cover the basics and move on to the core of how to use Unity. In addition, once you have completed the course you will have online access to many parts of the content used during the workshop for you to continue learning.
We would expect the students to have some prior programming experience (any language).
In this hands-on workshop students will:
- become familiar with the editor;
- create game objects;
- build levels;
- tweak object’s behaviour;
- be introduced to scripting in Unity with C#.
