Girls’ Games Workshop - Making Games is Not ‘Just for Boys’

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Description:
Together with a group of volunteers I am organizing workshops, where middle-school aged girls learn how games are made. During these 1-day workshops we provide the girls with the tools to realize their first game idea: game design, concepting as well as programming. During this session I will explain how we teach the different subjects, discuss feedback and what we’ve learned so far to keep improving. Of course I will also show some of the games that have been created during past workshops and explain why it is so important for me to play an active role in this initiative.

Get inspired what you could do to change the world you are working in towards a more diverse environment.
