Trident Technical College will resume its TechSat classes on Saturday, Jan. 26, at the Berkeley Campus in Moncks Corner.
The new Saturday technology program is for Lowcountry youth and is modeled after TTC’s successful “Kids’ College” program. The program serves youth ages 7 to 16 and is offered free of charge one Saturday a month at the Berkeley Campus.
Classes focus on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects, which are a critical need for youth in the region. A variety of engaging topics, such as mobile gaming, animation, video game design, engineering techniques and computer technology, will be covered.
TTC will host two sessions a day, one for each age group. January’s classes are as follows:
• Mobile Gamers Unite: (ages 7-11) 9 a.m. - Noon
Learn the tools that will allow you to make games for your mobile devices (tablet, e-reader, smart phone). See just what it takes to create video games for mobile devices.
• 3D Modeling: (ages 12-16) 1-4 p.m.
Learn the tools that professional movie makers and game makers use to create 3D works of art.
Other TechSat dates include Feb. 9 and March 16. For more information about TTC’s TechSat program, call the Berkeley Campus at 899-8024.
