Beaufort Digital CorridorBeaufort, SC – October 2, 2017 – The Beaufort Digital Corridor is pleased to announce the launch of Game On – a code education program geared toward middle and high school students who would like to learn the practice of game design and development. Game On will introduce students to the theory, tools, and practice required to create their own games.

The six-week course will be taught by Seth Konoza, a Games, Computer Graphics and Animation educator from Beaufort High School. This course will be held at the Beaufort Digital Corridor’s BASEcamp facility on Saturdays from 9am-12pm from October 14 to November 18, 2017.

Game On represents the start of the Beaufort Digital Corridor’s education offering. “With the growth of technology jobs including software, cybersecurity and cloud computing, getting our kids interested in a career in computer science at an early age is very important,” said Beaufort Digital Corridor Director, Ernest Andrade. “We expect to work with our education partners to offer more classes in technology with the goal to build a 21st century workforce in the Lowcountry.”

A limited number of needs-based scholarships are available thanks to the generous support from InterDev. Learn more about Game On and register HERE.
