The Middle School eSports camp will focus on the art of gaming and a few of the various games currently being played in a competitive league. We will look at a number of competitive games like Smash Brothers, Mario Kart, Minecraft, and Rocket League.  Each day will focus on one game, paired with specific skills needed for each game and strategies for success. We will study former competitive gamers and their strategies, and discuss what the future holds for competitive gaming and live streaming games.  When it comes to the art of gaming, we will look at creating artistic but fair levels in games like Mario, and discuss what it is that makes a game fun, popular, and/or successful in today’s competitive video game market. A number of these discussed games will be watched on video and played in class to grasp the basics and look for similarities, tricks and ultimately get some exposure to different genres and concepts seen in the world of gaming today. Students will also get a look into some basics of gaming socialization such as creating a Discord server, live streaming etiquette and safety, and online sportsmanship. If students have a Nintendo Switch and/or an Xbox or Playstation controller, it will be helpful to bring them to class. Students will also have access to a gaming PC.  This camp is a great opportunity for experienced gamers to hone their skills, and for new players to get the knowledge they need to pursue recreational or competitive online gaming.
