Pitts­burgh kids from 6 – 12th grade will have a chance to build video games, explore vir­tu­al worlds and expand on their cod­ing skills in dur­ing the Alice Boot­camp project on March 3rd in East Lib­er­ty. The event is free to attend.

Schell Games will have some team mem­bers at the event, as well as the Carnegie Mel­lon Uni­ver­si­ty Enter­tain­ment Tech­nol­o­gy Cen­ter.

Prin­ci­pal design­er Sab­ri­na Culy­ba, who will serve as one of the judges at the event, talked about the impor­tance of this event:

If kids want to get their toes in the water of pro­gram­ming and game design, this chal­lenge is a great way to do that.
