Dear Future Game Designer,
It's back for its seventh year!!! We are thrilled to announce that it is time to once again apply for the LaPIXEL Academy! The LaPIXEL Academy is a FREE four-week summer program, sponsored by LaPREP, that's held on the campus of LSUS. Throughout this hands-on program, you will learn about computer graphics, story development, character design, sprite animation, video game creation, and more! At the end of the program, you will have a video game to share with friends and family. What's more, you will have also learned some of the same skills and techniques used in simulation, computer gaming, bioinformatics, medical research, and intelligence operations such as cyber security.
The LaPIXEL Academy 2023 dates are June 5-30 from 9:30 AM to 2:00 PM (Lunch provided.) with a demonstration/graduation event where you can show your family and friends the video game you created! (More information about the demonstration/graduation event to come!)
To apply for this program, please COMPLETE ALL FIELDS in the application form below. Applications are due by Friday, April 30 but WILL BE ACCEPTED as long as there are spaces available. Although LaPREP grads have priority in the selection process, we consider applications from all high school students between the ages of 13 and 17. This program is only for first-time participants and we can only accept 15 students due to seating limitations. Also, since the program is only four weeks, participants are required to ATTEND ALL CLASSES. LaPIXEL Academy participant selection will be announced by May 5, 2023.
If you have any questions, call or email me at my information below. I hope to see you this summer in this fantastic program!
