Surrey’s Palbir Dhaliwal (left) and Sumrit Sanghera, both 16, are soaking up knowledge this summer at the Centre for Digital Media’s (CDM) Tomorrow’s Masters of Digital Media (MDM) Program.

The program is an intensive three-week summer boot camp for teens at Vancouver’s Centre for Digital Media.

The boot camp is taught by CDM faculty and uses the same state-of-the-art equipment that the MDM students use to earn their master’s degree.

The boot camp began on Aug. 10 and runs through Aug. 28, with 11 teens from Grades 9 to 12 enrolled.

During this program, students are learning basic software skills and game design, how to critique video games, how to tell stories through digital media, and the business aspects of digital media.

About 240 students have graduated at the MDM program since 2007.
