In these 8 week in-person Boot Camps we guide participants through the design process to create a prototype of an app or game design based upon their own creativity. The goal of Dreamers + Builders is to allow the participant to explore their own creativity using the formal design process, and ultimately see their own creative project come to light in the form of a prototype and pitch deck.
