Mouse Serious Games Course Selected for Games For Change Student Challenge

For the second year, Mouse has been selected to provide our Serious Games Course as the curriculum for the Games for Change Student Challenge.   

The Games for Change (G4C) Student Challenge is a national game design program that invites students to create digital games about issues impacting their communities.  The themes for this year include Kindness and Empathy, News Literacy, and Wildlife Conservation.   

This national competition involves students from public middle and high schools across the country, including from Los Angeles, New York City, Detroit, and Atlanta.  

Through the Mouse Serious Games Course, students learn the building blocks of game design and how to research, design, and code their own game prototype using Scratch.  Our Serious Games Course has 10 activities that include core mechanics, remixing games, and learning about the world of socially responsible gaming.  

Mouse is also honored to be part of this year’s Student Challenge with very impactful theme partners, including Born This Way Foundation, Common Sense Education, ithrive Games, and National Wildlife Foundation..

Check out the winners from the 2017 Games for Change Student Challenge and stayed tuned for the Awards Ceremony and exhibition of winning games in Spring 2018!
