THE GAMES FOR CHANGE STUDENT CHALLENGE is the leading national game design program and competition that combines students’ passion for games with digital learning and civic engagement. Each year, the program reaches thousands of students across the country who join hands-on and virtual game design courses, game jams, and a national game design competition, and gain 21st-century skills that prepare them for school advancement, college, and careers.
The Challenge also builds capacity for educators to teach students how to make games about real-world issues through school and museum-based courses. Now in its 6th year, the 2020-2021 program runs in Atlanta, Detroit, Los Angeles and New York City – as well as nationally through virtual opportunities for teachers and students.
