UMaine mentioned in Mount Desert Islander article on computer science class

The University of Maine was mentioned in a Mount Desert Islander article about an MDI High School game development class. Four students are taking their love of video games and combining it with art and science, developing their own games in the classroom, according to the article. “The big goal is to take game players and make them game creators,” teacher Megan McOsker said. The idea for the class stemmed from a field trip to UMaine last year, where an MDI computer science class discovered the potential of Unity, a free game development program. Unity is lauded for its relative simplicity and ability to create games across 27 platforms, from iPhones to Playstation to virtual reality, the article states.
