Project fun FAQs

Question

WHEN DO I NEED TO DROP OFF/PICK UP MY STUDENT?

Answer

Students may be dropped off no earlier than 30 minutes before the start of their course. Students must be picked up within 10 minutes after the end of the After-Workshop Activities period (5:00 p.m. for Grades 1-3, 5:30 p.m. for all other students).

An early drop-off or late pick-up will result in a $1 fee for every minute you are early for drop off or late for pick up.

Question

HOW DO YOU ENSURE THAT YOUR INSTRUCTORS ARE QUALIFIED?

Answer

The majority of our teachers are DigiPen undergraduates who are pursuing a career in digital interactive entertainment industry at DigiPen so their knowledge already surpasses curriculum. Additionally, we personally interview, hire and train each instructor. Instructors must undergo background checks, drug screening, and a two-week training program.

Question

WHAT IS THE DIGIPEN ZERO ENGINE?

Answer

The Zero Engine is a powerful piece of proprietary software developed by DigiPen to facilitate learning programming and game making. The Zero Engine allows beginning students to jump into the game-making process from day one and have the ability to manipulate different components of a game to see how it affects a game’s properties. This user-friendly software shows students the specific programming code behind game functions and, as students become more familiar with programming, they can begin to utilize their own code to handle game functions. Students receive a free membership to ProjectFUN, which includes the Zero Engine software, to continue their studies at home.

Workshop FAQs

Question

WHAT EXPERIENCE LEVEL OR KNOWLEDGE IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND THE WORKSHOPS?

Answer

No experience is necessary! Level 1 workshops do not require any programming or software experience. Although basic typing and computer skills are useful in all of the workshops, anyone motivated enough to enroll is qualified to participate.

Enrollment in Level 2 workshops requires completion of the Level 1 workshop of the same discipline or written permission from DigiPen.

Question

ARE THERE ALTERNATIVE DAILY LUNCHES PROVIDED FOR PARTICIPANTS WITH SPECIAL DIETARY NEEDS?

Answer

At the on-site workshops at DigiPen in Redmond, daily regular and vegetarian lunch options are provided. While all meals are peanut-free, we are unable to accommodate other food allergies and/or dietary needs.

Question

WHAT IS YOUR TEACHER-TO-STUDENT RATIO?

Answer

ProjectFUN Workshops teacher-to-student ratio ranges from 1:6 to 1:12 depending on the workshop. Our motivated teachers and staff are passionate about the gaming industry; the majority are DigiPen undergraduates whose education focuses on meeting the needs of the electronic entertainment industry.
