School libraries definitely attract keen gamers and digital problem solvers. Do you work with a teacher who will encourage students to use coding to solve a real world problem? Do you have Art students who aspire to a career in the digital environment?

The 2017 Victorian School Games and Apps Challenge is for them! It’s all about design and computational thinking.

• Show your teachers the Design Brief Template – http://gac.global2.vic.edu.au/create/
• Tell them about the free online tutorials about games and coding tools – http://gac.global2.vic.edu.au/tools-home/tools/
• Use the range of posters and headers to spread the word across your school – http://gac.global2.vic.edu.au/files/2016/07/ProfilePic-11f4mwn.png

Entries close 5pm, Wednesday 11 October and will be judged at the Education in Games Summit as part of Melbourne International Games Week 22 – 29 October.
