Teacher and Volunteer

I've known since primary school that I wanted to work with games. But I had no idea how to get started. So naturally now that I know, I try to help other kids getting started on the right path. As a volunteer in Youth Association of Science I've organized the summer camp Game Development Camp for four years. First as the accountant in 2009 and since as programming teacher, teacers' coordinator and co-coordinator for the camp. The camp takes place a week in the schools summer holidays, where ~70 kids are taught respectively programming, 2D art, 3D modeling and audio design, ultimately creating a small game in Unity. In preparation for Game Development Camp 2011 and 2012 I wrote the programming chapter and edited Game Bogen (Danish), a small book introducing kids to game development.

As a board member and organizer in Young Game Developers, I've been working as a teacher since 2009 to 2014 organizing one day game development workshops for libraries, primary schools and high schools. Mainly teaching Scratch since it directly relates to regular programming, but still allows kids to make a complete game in few hours. At few occasions I've also held workshops helping teachers planning game development projects for their school classes.

Lately I've been teaching intro courses in Unity as an external Teacher for DADIU and the IT-University of Copenhagen. Including four weeks of mentoring the programming teams at DADIU making their individual projects.
