Ubisoft Australia has announced today that they have partnered with Code Camp to teach kids how to code using their upcoming title Starlink: Battle For Atlas.
The program aims to give kids a first look at the benefits of learning to code and related careers.
In a special, one-day event at Ubisoft’s Sydney headquarters, a lucky group of kids will learn how to code their own unique Starlink: Battle for Atlas™ mini-game, as well as meeting Ubisoft developers to learn more about this creative and growing industry. Code Camp students across the country will be given the opportunity to use Starlink: Battle for Atlas™ characters, spaceships and theming as part of Code Camp’s online coding platform, Code Camp World.
Coding has quickly become an essential skill for the future career development of today’s youth, Code Camp have taught over 40,000 kids to code and are the leading authority on kids’ coding education in Australia. They are on a mission to create 200,000 little coders by 2020 through holiday camps, in-school and after-school programs.
Video games are the fastest growing sector of the entertainment industry, generating billions in revenue and employing thousands worldwide. If your child has shown a passion for gaming or an interest in coding and you are excited at the thought of them stepping beyond the screen to learn more, Ubisoft and Code Camp are looking for twenty kids between the ages of 8-12 who can attend the camp in our Ultimo offices on Saturday, October 13.
On the day, all catering and equipment including laptops will be provided, as well as an exclusive peek at Starlink: Battle for Atlas™. Parents in NSW can apply for the chance to win a spot for their child here, parents outside of NSW can also enter to win a free Code Camp spot for their child plus a Starlink: Battle for Atlas™ starter pack on the platform of their choice.
Starlink: Battle for Atlas is an upcoming Open world action adventure game that utilises the toys to life model. Players will be able to build their own starship using physical modular toys, linking it with their game controller and travelling the galaxy. It has been featured in the last 2 Ubisoft E3 showcases and will launch on October 16 for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
