Have you ever wanted to explore making games for science education? Share knowledge of your favourite scientific field through your own game. This is a great time to put your thinking cap on and make a game with scientific meaning.
This Game Jam will run over the weekend both on site and online. On day one, the signature prompts* for the jam will be revealed. You’ll then be shown examples of fun educational games and introduced to simple game making concepts and tools. After a guided brainstorming session, you’ll start making a prototype of your very own game.
This event is open to all. You could be a seasoned game developer or a beginner wanting to test the waters.
*Signature Prompts: To help get those creative juices flowing, you’ll be provided with a couple of prompts to choose from. These will be revealed on day one. You can either revolve your game around this prompt, or subtly incorporate it with your game.
