Event description
A fun and collaborative weekend event of game making for Y12-13 Dunedin high school students, hosted by Otago Polytechnic.

About this event

To coincide with the recently established Centre of Digital Excellence (CODE) in Dunedin, Otago Polytechnic is proud to host the Dunedin Schools Game Jam.

The event is open to Dunedin high school students studying the digital curriculum at years 12 and 13, and will run over the weekend of May 28 – May 30.

Students will form teams and be assigned a theme on the inaugural night, and then spend the next 48 hours designing and coding a fully-fledged game!

Throughout the weekend, mentors from the local game industry, as well as staff and senior students in the Bachelor of Information Technology programme will be on hand to guide participants and offer advice and feedback on the games as they progress.

These events are awesome for fostering friendships, increasing confidence and creating opportunities within the game dev communities. Students get to challenge themselves and their creativity, explore new roles, and develop and refine skills.

The Game Jam will culminate in a mini showcase of the games on the Sunday evening, where members of the public are welcome to be in attendance. There will be food provided and spot prizes awarded throughout the event.

Friday 28 May: 6pm - 10pm

Saturday 29 May: 9am - 10pm

Sunday 30 May: 9am - 6pm

Before attending, you must be aware our Code of Conduct and Safe Space Policy. The Otago Polytechnic and Dunedin Schools Game Jam have zero tolerance for harassment or bullying of participants in any form.

This community event listing is made possible with the support of Otago Polytechnic, NZTech and CODE.
