STEMx – Game Design and Development Workshop for Kids 10-18

CREATING A BETTER WORLD BEGINS BY IMAGINING ONE

JOIN STEM SCHOOL’S GAME DESIGN WORKSHOP FOR KIDS AND WIN!

National STEM School, in collaboration with Pakistan Innovation Foundation, announces a Game Design Workshop for kids 10-18 that will prepare them to code a game for submission to the global Code Game Challenge by XPrize Connect!

Creating a better world starts with imagining one. Young innovators ages 10-18 across the globe are invited to create new fun games that envision and ultimately help build a better future for everyone. By incorporating inspiration and creativity from the next generation, these new games will allow young creators to hone critical skills in coding and game design to shape the technology in their world, rather than be shaped by it. Join the challenge to create fun and immersive video games that entertain and dare to imagine creative solutions to some of the biggest global challenges.

A 5 week hands-on Game Design and Development Workshop will run from Sept 1 to Oct 10th, 2 hours a day, 3 days a week plus 1-2 of practice every day. Kids will learn to design and develop a game on Unity and publish it on CodeGames platform (https://www.codegameschallenge.org)*
