Senior Girls in Games is an immersive full-day event that covers the basics of Game Art and Game Programming for aspirational game developers in Years 11-13 that identify as female.

Girls in Games includes hands-on and inspirational game design, game art, and game programming workshops. Over the course of the day, you'll be introduced to creating art assets for games in 2D or 3D.

You'll also create your own game using a game engine and gain valuable insights from Media Design School's Game Development staff.
