Youth Programs

DigiPen's ProjectFUN Youth Programs offer opportunities for elementary, middle, and high school students to improve their knowledge of core academic subjects such as art, science, and math, as well as enhance their critical thinking abilities through “real-world” applications in gaming, art, and engineering. These programs combine classroom-based instruction on theory with hands-on assignments where students get a chance to put their knowledge into practice.

Summer Workshops

Since 1994, DigiPen has offered highly engaging workshops which give elementary, middle and high school students a first taste of what is involved with programming, game design, fine arts and multimedia production and engineering. Workshops are offered online, on-site, and in various locations. >Learn more about the ProjectFUN Summer Workshops.
