See Yourself in STEM Game Jam
A game jam (making a game within a time limit using a prescribed set of tools) is a great way for young people of any experience level to try their hand at building a game – from coding on up. MassDiGI, working with the Becker College student game development club and a Becker College professor, is offering a 6 hour game jam for high school students, teachers and parents across the state this Mass. STEM Week.
Interested students, teachers and parents will spend their time creating a digital game from assets that the club provides using the Game Maker software engine*. This engine has a simple and intuitive workflow that students of all backgrounds will be able to easily pick up.
For those participating online there will be a dedicated communications channel with all Becker student club members so that if anyone participating online runs into any problems they can be helped promptly. The club will provide all that participate with a game jam “kit”, this will provide people with the engine along with any assets that the people may need. The theme of the game jam will be See Yourself in STEM.
And, lastly, after the conclusion of the game jam and to the extent possible, the games will be posted online for all to play.
