We started doing community outreaches again this year where our main goal is to get kids excited about science through one of their main interests: video games. We are pursuing our mission to help the community by showing kids at schools or during coding events how much designing a game can be fun. Our 20-year industry expert and camp director, Christopher Williamson, typically takes up to an hour to make a live interactive demo building a video game with students’ input using Unity3D and provide both an entertaining and inspiring experience as well as share what STEM/STEAM skills are really necessary to build the video games they already enjoy playing.
We first had an engaging demonstration at Monarch K-8 in Louisville, where we met with school graders to participate in building live a video game. The feedback we get from these events is incredible, it motivates us to do more for kids in our community. Teachers tell us how much kids liked our presentation and realized their passion for video games can be turned into something useful in the future. Ultimately, it seems important to us that we share the knowledge we put together throughout our 15-year presence in the industry as DreamQuest Games and empower tomorrow’s designers.
