This game jam is focused on Climate Change - a Student Challenge theme supported by NOAA! Meet climate experts and learn how global warming is impacting our city and how we can best prepare for our climate future! Then participate in hands-on game stations to apply your new knowledge to game design.
NYC middle and high school students are invited to this hands-on game jam where they will be creating games about the impacts of global warming. Join Games for Change and partners to explore how you can make your community, school and neighborhood a better place to live, learn and play!
ABOUT THE MOVEABLE GAME JAMS:
Games for Change is hosting four Moveable Game Jams (MGJs) as part of the NYC G4C Student Challenge program, a game design competition for middle and high school students. Students are invited to come meet professional game designers and civic leaders, and learn aspects of game design. Each MGJ will be hosted in a different NYC borough with activities facilitated by organizations leading the way on coding, STEM, game making and social justice!
ABOUT THE G4C STUDENT CHALLENGE:
The G4C Student Challenge is a digital game design competition that invites middle and high school students to create original games about three real-world themes: Climate Change, Future Communities and Local Voices & Immigrant Stories. The 2016-2017 program is running in NYC, Dallas, and Pittsburgh public schools. Challenge winners win prizes such as paid internships and mentorships. An awards ceremony and exhibition of student games will be hosted in each city.
