Digital game design workshop this Saturday

November 28, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Games for Change Student Challenge is a game design competition that challenges students to learn simple game design while also learning about community issues.

In the challenge, middle-school and high-school students use simple game engine software such as Scratch, Unity 3D, Snap!, Gamesalad and others to create digital games. They then use these game platforms to build interactive games that incorporate a community issue, such as aging or the environment.

This Saturday, Dec. 1, students are invited to Georgia Tech for a Game Jam, a workshop that will introduce beginning concepts in game design and civic engagement. The workshop is free, but advance registration is required.

The Game Jam can help students gets started in the Games for Change competition, which will accept student submissions from February 1 to April 1, 2019. For the competition, students can work individually or in teams of up to four people.

Established in New York in 2015, the Games for Change Student Challenge will operate this year in four U.S. cities: New York, Atlanta, Detroit, and Los Angeles.
