This April, Basecamp, Power Mac Center’s official training provider, is offering Design Trail and Vision Hub workshop series that offer fun and age-appropriate digital courses on animation, game design, web design, video editing, and app development.
Storytelling with iPad
Kids who love telling tales will learn to express their ideas through comics brought to life by technology after completing the Design Trail courses “The Art of Comics” and “2D Animation using iPad.” Designed for 7-10 years old, these courses will strengthen their visual communication skills through creating new characters from basic lines, shapes, and colors.
Older teens and young adults aged 16-21 years old, meanwhile, can enroll in Vision Hub’s “3D Creation and Animation for Beginners,” which takes it to the next level through animation techniques and software tools actually used in the industry.
Programming and STEM skills
If your child is constantly immersed in game platforms such as Roblox and Minecraft, might as well get them a more structured training course that can teach them how to build their own Roblox game and publish it on Roblox Studio. They can also familiarize themselves with Minecraft for Education, which is a great tool for learning that builds science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) skills, unleashes creativity, and engages students in collaboration and problem-solving.
Kids can learn the discipline involved in creating their own games through various software and programming languages, while teens and young adults can hone their skills in web design, video editing, and app development. These digital courses are conducted either online or face- to-face and available year-round so your kids can fit them in their free time.
Design Trail for Kids also offers courses designed to develop analog skills such as drawing, painting, printmaking, and manga-creation. In addition, young scientists are invited to discover scientific concepts through hands-on activities and inquiry-based learning.
These non-digital courses are conducted exclusively in person, in order to increase children’s appreciation for the value of hands-on work and imagination. The Basecamp training center is located at 3/L Glorietta 5, Ayala Center, Makati.
Design Trail classes are conducted in the course of four days, for 1.5 hours each session:
- Digital courses: P2,500 for online sessions; P3,000 for face-to-face classes
- Non-digital courses: P3,000
Vision Hub’s online courses are priced at P5,500 per head, per course, conducted over five days per course, for 15 hours in total.
Enrollees in the Visayas and Mindanao region will also be provided with modules written in Cebuano. Courses will start on April 11 and will be ongoing all year long.
As a special treat to early registrants, the first five customers of Design Trail and Vision Hub can enjoy P500 off their training fee, which will be reflected in their invoice.
