Games and Apps Challenge

The Games and Apps Challenge is open to all Victorian school students in years 3 to 10 and aims to encourage creativity in coding and highlight the role of art and design in the games industry. It involves students producing games and apps that offer solutions to real-world problems.

Participating schools will work on creating their games/apps during term 3, 2018. Microsoft and Apple Australia, as DET industry partners, will provide ongoing professional learning and support to schools who choose to use their products for the challenge.

The Challenge will culminate in a showcase exhibition at the Education in Games Summit 2018 at ACMI on Friday 26th October 2018. Industry partners will support their schools in a workshop with participating schools on the morning of the showcase.

The theme for this year’s Games and App Challenge is: Together We Can.
