Join us at Rutgers Tech Camps this summer for fun, learning, and more! Our 21st century S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) summer camp programs focus on giving kids the tools they need to lead successful lives in the digital age. We will engage your child's creativity and problem solving abilities, while teaching them technology skills that will last a lifetime.

In this camp, you'll compete in daily Fortnite battles and use the game as inspiration to design your own 3D adventures. To build your adventure, you will use 3D game engine design tools and Portal 2 to create an adventure that features intricate labyrinths, puzzles, and traps.

All skill levels welcome.

Camper Goals:

  • Explore and build 3D game worlds, puzzles, and problems
  • Gain familiarity with Portal 2 game design tools and 3D design principles
  • Build a Rube Goldberg Machine (RGM)
  • Build a Parkour (Jumping and Falling) Map
Target Audience: Researchers,  Faculty,  Staff,  Alumni,  General Public,  Parents & Families
