The Accelerate Pre College classes I took were very fun. We learned that computer science and game design can be used in the real world for multiple jobs outside of the typical Website Programmer or Game Programmer roles. Many guest speakers showcased their art and talked to us about their jobs.Overall, the class was very comprehensive, and I learned a lot of useful information in storytelling and game programming. If it was possible, I would stay in the program longer so that I can learn more.
