Student ambassadors game jam virtually

by | May 25, 2020 | News | 0 comments

We were thrilled to be able to still host our second 2020 Student Ambassador Program day remotely last Thursday. The young people took part in a game jam where they worked in virtual teams to develop social games that allowed players to remain socially distant. In this two-hour session, students researched existing games and strategies for social connection before making their own games using Microsoft’s MakeCode Arcade. From a chess game played from anywhere in the world with a robot to an online murder mystery board game, students did an amazing job of collaborating in this new online space. Check out and play two of the games here and here. Thanks for joining us, ambassadors!
