The Exploratory is excited to be hosting the National STEM Video Game Challenge this upcoming Tuesday!
This is a 3-hour workshop about game design that will also help you get started on your entries into the National Stem Video Game Challenge. This annual contest encourages young people to design video games, and awards recognition and cash prizes to the top teen designers. We were lucky enough to be chosen as one of the few sites in the state to host these workshops. We're excited to work together and see what you can do!
The workshop is 3 hours, from 4-7pm, with hands-on activities and design time on the computer. After the workshop we will be available to talk about how to enter the contest, and we will have a Q and A session with a mentor currently working in the video game industry to talk about careers and opportunities.
What is the National STEM Video Game Challenge?
Inspired by the “Educate to Innovate” campaign, President Obama’s initiative to promote a renewed focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education, the National STEM Video Game Challenge aims to motivate interest in STEM learning among America’s youth by tapping into students’ natural passions for playing and making video games.
Date: Tuesday, February 17
*RSVP is Required. The workshop is free but we require a $10 deposit to reserve your spot. When you attend, we will reimburse you the amount.
