Marine Engineering and Video Game Design at Saskatoon Field House

Marine Engineering and Video Game Design at Saskatoon Field House

Choose AM only or PM only or Full Day Camp
Marine Engineering (Morning Only)
Marine engineering has existed since the time of the earliest ships, it has been called by other names, such as ocean engineering and marine mechanical engineering. Engineers in this discipline deal primarily with designing and maintaining the moving parts located below-deck in ships. With the advent of modern technology, marine engineers also oversee the design of other ship components, such as propellers, stabilizers, and rescue systems. Marine engineering is also closely tied to naval architecture.

During the Marine Engineering classes, your child will use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and refine several types of marine based devices and vehicles. Your child will construct working prototypes that teach and reinforce the concepts of above water transportation, underwater exploration, and harnessing the power of water. They gain exposure to careers in naval, ocean, and marine engineering as well as naval architecture.

Video Game Design (Afternoon Only)
Video game design is one of the most imagination driven forms of engineering. Physics or real world issues do not bind video game designers unlike conventional engineers. Anything a video game designer can think up he or she can build without limitations by funding or safety protocols. Many times we like to say the sky is the limit of what we can achieve but for electronic game engineers the limit is where ever they wish to stop.

The compiled version of all of the video games will be distributed via Drop Box (this means your child will receive more than just their games). These files work best on computers with MS Windows environments. The software is Clickteam Fusion 2.5.
