My story from MV Code Camp
By Trevor Islam, grade 6, Mill Valley Middle School
I liked MV Code Camp because we learned how to make really fun video games. I learned a lot about making additions to existing video games and creating new ones of my own. For example, I made a roller coaster game in virtual reality where I rode on a roller coaster and had to shoot down gnomes. To do this, I had to learn how to make and export games using Unity and C#. I also made a Minecraft plugin where I have a broomstick and I can fly. It’s really useful because I can go really fast on it through my world.
Each day started out with coding, next a snack break, then more coding, then a lunch break, then more coding. At the lunch break, we played a big game of Capture the Flag with campers and counselors. It felt great to run around outside.
All of the counselors were really happy and very knowledgeable. For example, one time I just couldn’t figure out how to make myself fly in Minecraft. I asked a counselor, and they immediately helped me figure it out. The counselors also gave me tips that I could use in many different situations. I also really liked that there was a perfect balance of learning to code and taking breaks outside.
