We’re working on updating our contact details database, but if you’re not the right person to be receiving this email we would appreciate if you can forward this message on and if you would like us to update our database please reply to this email.

Media Design School


 

Celebrating five years of Girls in Games!

For five years now, Media Design School has run Girls in Games, an immersive one-day workshop that covers the basics of Game Art, Game Programming, and Game Design at our Auckland campus.

Spaces are available for our Senior and Junior Girls in Games workshops!

Right now, girls from schools across New Zealand have already registered for the Girls in Games Senior Dev Day (Years 11-13) on 12 September 2017 and Girls in Games Junior Dev Day (Years 9-10) on 28 November 2017.

Over the course of the day, the girls are introduced to creating art assets for games in 2D or 3D. They'll also use GameMaker, a programme that allows them to create amazing cross-platform games, and gain valuable insights from Media Design School's Game Development faculty.

Why teachers from across New Zealand are talking about Girls in Games...

Girls in Games is one of New Zealand's most recognised STEM programmes for young women in Aotearoa. Our programme has been featured and reviewed in Stuff and The Spinoff ... and even by students who have taken part themselves in Tearaway!

Great! How do I register my students for Girls in Games?

You can register for Senior Dev Day in September on Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.co.nz/e/girls-in-games-2017-senior-dev-day-tickets-32282313268.
