Summer Internship at iD Tech Camps

During the summer semester, Game Design and Game Programming student Tyler “Ozzy” Osborne worked as a paid intern for iD Tech Camps held at Rancho Solano Prep School in Scottsdale, from June – Aug. 2017.

Ozzy was responsible for teaching students, who ranged in age from 13-17 years-old, Autodesk Maya, Unreal Engine 4, C# scripting with Unity Engine, and level design in a mod pack for Torchlight II.

The camp accepts students as young as 6-years-old up to 17-years-old.

Much of the job entailed trouble shooting, resolving issues that the students encountered, supervision of the group, encouraging students to follow instructions, and interaction and mentoring skills.

Ozzy was responsible for a maximum of eight kids. In managing a small group, he easily could teach them concepts as a group and then answer individual questions one-on-one.

One student really stood out because he took the project a little further than most. This student created a city builder game in Unity, when the task was to only replicate the classic Frogger game from the 80s.

Now that Ozzy’s summer internship is completed he admits he learned a lot from this experience. Ozzy now understands how tough it is to be a teacher and how much time it takes to prepare lessons, but the feeling is quite rewarding to see students exceed your expectations.

Ozzy attended iD Tech Camps when he was 13 and that’s how he became interested in becoming a game designer, and eventually found his place at UAT!
