Our social media team here at CTeLearning are excited to tell the Big video game development studios to beware. New Castle Pennsylvania is training a new generation of game developers and coders. PJ Shaffer at Lawrence County Area Vocational Technical Center has implemented our Coding and 3D Video Game Design Course. Mr. Shaffer will be facilitating his students through this media rich career simulation to learn the basics of coding and 3D game design. As his students code their games, they will be engaging in real-world STEAM skills all within a fun project based learning approach. His Students will build a career oriented portfolio that is proof of his students growth and understanding of programming, design and the problem-solving process. The 3D games his students create are theirs to develop and even market. The Problem-solving and coding his students are learning are true 21st century skills that will help the students wherever their career interest takes them. This course requires no previous experience in coding or design. Therefore, our Coding and 3D Video Game Design course is perfect for a learner who thinks they may have what it takes to build the next blockbuster video game. It is also ideal for the student who just wants to test drive this high demand STEAM career. As part of this course, Mr. Shaffer’s students may also compete in an international 3D video game design competition. We are very excited to have PJ Shaffer and the students of Lawrence County AVTC as part of our STEAM career team. If you are a student at Lawrence County then contact Mr. Shaffer or your counselor about this course.
