All our classes are online with a live tutor. Your child will be able to see the tutor and their screen. Just like a physical lesson, your child can ask for help and request their tutor to see & even control their screen.
In the 21st Century, it's crucial for your child to learn "how to learn online", because if your child master's this skill, there will be no limit to what they can learn!
Who is it for?
This course is suitable for students 9 to 16 years old. No previous experience required!
What does it teach?
Students will learn games development with Unreal Engine, the same tool taught at universities and used to develop games such as Fortnite, Star Wars & Batman!
Why choose this course?
This course is designed by London's university professors and teaches the same tools taught at universities.
This course also contributes towards achieving an NCFE Accredited Qualification!
How do they get certified?
A single camp provides 50% of the criteria required for achieving an NCFE Accredited Qualification. By joining 2 camps, you will meet the full requirement for achieving our Level 1 Award Qualification. Assessment is coursework based and completed during class hours, with no further exams required but there is a small additional assessment fee for this.

Everything you need to know about 3D Computer Games Design Holiday Camps For kids
Your child will...
Technical skills is a key aspect of this course, and students will learn different elements of designing a 3D game. Students will learn about design processes, such as 3D level design, 3D modelling, texturing & materials, lighting and particle systems. They will also learn programming and scripting for games, such as artificial intelligence, game physics, weapon systems, menus and user interface. And last but not least, characters! Students will learn how to design and program characters and give them attributes like health & damage.
This course will improve your child's soft skills too. During the camp, students are challenged with different tasks, improving their problem solving skills. Your child will be encouraged to have a creative approach and think outside the box. Ultimately, they're designing a game, so they can create a world with endless possibilities and imagination. Creating a game similar to the games they play regularly will significantly improve their self-esteem and boost their self-confidence!
This course will help your child progress faster & better at school & college. Students will learn a lot more about computer science, how coding works, and how 3D design is achieved through game technology.
At Software Academy, you will also have the option to get your child certified. Our NCFE accredited qualifications go up to 3 levels: Level 1 Award, Level 2 Certificate, and Level 3 Diploma. By joining 2 holiday camps, your child will meet the requirements to achieve Level 1 award, and can then progress onto level 2 & 3!
Understanding how games are made will equip your child with priceless experience and knowledge. Since they will be using industry standard tools and learning real world skills, they'll be able to discover potential career paths. Learning games design opens up a world of opportunities, because the skills they learn are highly transferable in other sectors. With this course, they will discover all the other possible opportunities available, such as films, animation, advertisement, and even architectural visualisation!
By completing this camp, students will have a finished project to share with family & friends. But that's not all! Their project will be seen as a outstanding portfolio piece & considered a great achievement by potential schools, colleges and even employers!
Additionally, by completing a camp, students will achieve 1/2 of the criteria required to get an NCFE accredited qualification, should you choose to get your child officially certified!
This camp runs during school holidays, so it's been designed with fun & excitement in mind! But the bigger picture, is that your child will design games instead of playing them.
And that is exactly our aim, to transform students from users of technology, to innovators of technology! In this course, your child will unleash their imagination and creativity to make their own game!

How to prepare for the 3D Computer Games Design Holiday Camps For kids
You will need to download and install Unreal Engine for this course. Even though this is a free software, it requires a relatively recent computer to run. Typically, any computer or laptop purchased within the previous 4 years should be sufficient. Unreal Engine works on both Windows and Mac OS X, but cannot be used on other devices such as Chromebooks or tablets.
We have created a complete guide to help you prepare for this camp.
In the event that your system does not meet the requirement to join this camp, we offer an excellent alternative with our Python coding camp which has a significantly lower system requirement and will work fine on most computers & laptops.
