This year’s MSU Media Summer Camps have come to a close. The camps allow high school and middle school students to experience an accelerated sample curriculum from one of many areas: Video Game Design, Digital Cinema, Television, and Music Recording. Students enrolled in the day camp only or stayed overnight in official MSU dorms for an authentic college-like experience.
Each camp ran one week, spanning from 9am to 5pm, and for those students staying overnight, evening activities provided a fun outlet for youthful energy. Each week culminated in a showcase where the instructors introduced the students and their work. Many parents attended to view the work their children created and speak with the instructors.
Video game design campers created their own video games in teams, learning a bit of programming, 3D and game design, and each team member brought home a working game. Television campers learned the fundamentals of television studio production and equipment, and each student directed his or her own TV show. Digital Cinema campers learned how to use video cameras and editing software, and taped their videos throughout campus. Music Recording camp allowed students to learn how to record and edit audio, and students returned home with a music track they recorded.
The MSU Media Summer camps will return next year in July, so mark your calendars now! Visit http://tism.msu.edu/camps for more information.
