ProjectFUN Homeschool

ProjectFUN Homeschool – Registration for New Courses SPRING 2017 are Now OPEN!

ProjectFUN Homeschool provides students in grades K-12 with opportunities to study video game programming, art and animation, game design, engineering, and music and sound design. For Fall 2016, in response to feedback and demand from homeschooling families, DigiPen will have NEW courses that teach general science, applied math, and even basic reading and writing! Beyond the specific content covered in each course, students will also develop age appropriate study skills in each course including research, note-taking, organizational skills, and writing.

For 2016-2017, DigiPen has added a brand new, full-year opportunity for Teens – the DigiPen Game Development Academy. The DigiPen Game Development Academy is a challenging, multidisciplinary experience designed to teach students how to create video games using math, physics, computer science, art and animation, sound and music, and game design principles.

Location

DigiPen will be utilizing classrooms at Overlake Church, which is located directly across the street from DigiPen’s campus at 9900 Willows Road NE, Redmond.
