Marshall University is offering young students the chance to learn about developing video games at a camp this week. The university’s Center for Continuing Education says the camp is for students ages 10 to 17. It will be held Monday through Friday in Prichard Hall on Marshall’s campus in Huntington.

The cost is $125 per student. Marshall says in a news release that camp participants will work in teams to develop a video game concept to present on the final day. Most of the time will be spent creating a presentation that includes characters, a story line, descriptions of game play, levels and scoring, along with art and music. They’ll also be taught about how the video game industry works and areas they might be interested in pursuing.

A second camp session will be offered July 10 through 14.
