The Next Generation of Digital Design   DIGISPIRED ii is a Workforce Investigation Inspiration for Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Program funded by the National Science Foundation to Longwood University.  Digispired ii was developed for high school students in Southern Virginia to explore game design, explore STEM principles behind game controllers, learn to use C#, and then create games using Unity3D.
choose from 10 presets in either light or dark each of which can have either a light or a dark mainbody. Also, there are High, Medium and Low modes, in regards to the detail level, which allows Digispired staff to choose from either, a more graphically intense or a more graphically conservative variant of your style of choice.
powered by an army of small yet efficient turtles Digispired is powered by a small turtles, these turtles are very efficient and can even make PCB circuitboards. They could not however, help me come up with an article for this area. So it will simply talk about turtles.

The Next Generation of Digital Design

 

DIGISPIRED ii is a Workforce Investigation Inspiration for Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Program funded by the National Science Foundation to Longwood University.  Digispired ii was developed for high school students in Southern Virginia to explore game design, explore STEM principles behind game controllers, learn to use C#, and then create games using Unity3D.

In 2009 Longwood ITTIP recruited high school students from Southern Virginia for the Digispired ii Project. We began the program with over 65 students. By joining the Digispired ii program students were to embark on an adventure in exploring Science and Engineering principles behind game controllers, they were going to interact with experts in the gaming industry, and learn to enhance programming skills using multi-platform game development tools to create games.

Digispired ii is currently in its 3rd year. Students meet at either Longwood University, Southern Virginia Higher Education Center or Virginia State University for two weeks in the Summers and for 10 Saturdays in the Fall and Spring. Students receive a stipend of $400.00 per year (depending on attendance) for all their hard work.

During these past few years students have learned new techniques in game design and program coding. They have learned to use the C# program for game design and in the upcoming year students will focus on using Unity 3D. This program is used to create games for the Wii gaming system.
