The Summer Institute 2010 is a program bringing students from community colleges, tribal colleges and teachers from middle schools together to learn about how to use game design for computer science education and other STEM disciplines (e.g. Math and Science). The Scalable Game Design project supports teachers through a grant by the National Science Foundation.

This year, the new participants (both teachers and students) will be brought up to speed in the first week of the Institute. Then the old participants will join the group for the second week to learn about the next steps in the Scalable Game Design project. Last year, teachers were asked to teach (and CC students to support) a short module on how to build Frogger to serve mainly as a motivation to get middle school students interested in computer science and game design. This year, we will be teaching advanced game design and transitioning to computational science.

Dates & schedules for this year's Summer Institute:

  • Week 1: New Students & New Teachers (June 1, 2010 to June 5, 2010)
  • Week 2: Returning Participants join new ones (June 7, 2010 to June 11, 2010)
