LHU workshop on 3D animation and graphics for middle school students
May 3, 2012
The Computer Science faculty at Lock Haven University will be offering a Workshop on 3D Animation and Graphics this summer for middle school students. Children interested in computer graphics, animation and video games should participate in this workshop.
The five day workshop begins on June 25 and ends on the June 29. This hands-on workshop will cover Mesh Modeling, Animation, and Video Game design and will introduce the student to computer graphics.
The workshop is designed for beginners and the only prerequisite called for is an interest in working with computers. By the end of the week participants will create a simple video game and learn the techniques involved in designing one.
This is the third summer that the LHU Computer Science faculty will be offering this workshop. The past two workshops have been so successful that it is being offered again. The workshop is not only fun, but it introduces young students to computer science and promotes computer science as a possible career option.
The registration fee is $75 and includes use of the computing facility, lunch at Bentley Hall each day, and study material.
The workshop starts at 9:00 am each day in Akeley Hall, Room 203. The morning session runs for three hours with a one-hour lunch break from 12:00 to 1:00. Lunch will be served on campus at the Bentley Dining Hall. All participants will be chaperoned to and from class. The afternoon session will continue from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
