This year’s theme is Reaction.
Registrations for the 2017 Australian STEM Video Game Challenge have opened, with an all new theme, Reaction.
The challenge is a national competition open to all Australian students in Years 5-12. The competition is completely free to enter, and represents a great opportunity for upper primary and secondary students to engage in hands-on, inquiry-driven learning spanning the areas of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) in a fun, exciting and challenging way.
Students are able to enter in teams of 1-4 members and are encouraged to work collaboratively to design and build a working and playable original video game based on STEM in response to a core theme.
Facilitated by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) and supported by leading organisations at the cross-section of education, information technology, entrepreneurial innovation and entertainment, exists to help engage Australian students with STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines in a new and exciting way, and to facilitate self-motivated and enjoyable learning that inspires and prepares the next generation of Australian students for the future.
The competition will run through to Friday 25 August, 2017.
