Introducing young people to video game careers
In our work with at-risk young people we’ve noticed that many have incredible knowledge about gaming. We see this as a strength and use it to re-engage them back into formal education.
This student-lead, 10 week program explores game design, programming, esports, sound, storylines, level design, and more… It’s purpose is to spark an interest in careers in gaming and provide insight into pathways to achieve this.
