Midwest Youth Game Jam 2015

RESCHEDULED DUE TO IMPENDING WEATHER CONDITIONS to MARCH 20 & MARCH 21

Join us Friday, March 20 and Saturday, March 21 at Youth Learning Center's Midwest Youth Game Jam! What exactly is a Game Jam, you ask? Kids with a love of video games, card games, board games, video game design, or just games in general get together for a weekend and are challenged to create a completely unique and creative game based around a secret theme! There is no cost to participate and no prior game design experience is necessary.

Don't know how to program or still developing your programming skills? No problem! Each team will have its own game design industry professional to assist with programming/coding! Want to brush up on your programming skills before the event? Check out YLC's online GameSalad class on Udemy.com.

Parents, sign up your student today!
