Maker Girls: Girls Got Game
Monday, May 10, 4:00 – 5:30 pm
4th – 8th grade
Learn about how video games are created from real women who work in the field. There are so many elements that go into creating a video game – art, music, storytelling, coding… there’s something for everyone! In this virtual workshop, you will work together as a team of girls and women to create a video game that represents your voices and interests.
This workshop is part of our Maker Girls initiative, a series of workshops and other events designed to inspire, engage and empower girls with an early interest in STEM-inspired projects. Our Maker Girls programs are open to all kids, regardless of gender identity.
We believe partnerships are critical in making sure all kids have access to innovative learning opportunities such as maker learning. We thank all the participating organizations that helped us to plan the local festival so that families across the DMV could explore and experience a wide range of hands-on activities:
