Saturday 10/3: 10am-10pm
*What is a Climate Game Jam?* Teams gather to rapidly design a game (online, mobile, street, tabletop, or other formats) to teach learners of all ages about the impacts of and solutions to climate change. Participants work together throughout the weekend to create a working climate game prototype.
*Who can participate?* The Climate Game Jam is open to the public! The Jam offers a unique opportunity for educators, college students, scientists, game designers, and anyone else who is interested, to work together on climate game prototypes that span a range of platforms, topics, and audiences. Although having experience in game design and/or climate change educations is helpful, it is not necessary.
*Featuring special guest speakers and opportunities for prizes!*
