Game Making Workshop Invites Teens to Get Creative and Learn New Skills

Students between the ages of 12 and 15 years are invited to take part in a weeklong game making workshop. 

Designed for students between the ages of 12 and 15 years old, Enterprise Cayman by Cayman Enterprise City, has announced they will be hosting a weeklong game making workshop this summer.

Applications are now being accepted for the hands-on immersive learning experience that will encourage interest in STEM subjects as well as offer engaging learning opportunities for young adults. During the workshop, participants will build game prototypes, learn how to pitch their ideas and showcase their final game products and designs.

“This workshop is all about the creative process in coming up with an original idea and bringing it to life,” says Enterprise Cayman’s new VP of Public Engagement and Technology, Peter Reilly. “We want to take the students through a structured design process where we will encourage the participants to develop skills in team working, innovating and sharing ideas. The design process is all about good communication and working together and what could be a better way of developing and applying those skills in a fun and engaging way, than designing your own game!”

The Game Making Workshop has been designed and developed by former Enterprise Cayman interns including Adam Clarke who recently landed a prestigious job with Infinity Ward the creators of the video game Call of Duty. Enterprise Cayman’s Maker Space Ambassador and recent Game Design and Development Graduate, Alyssa Ebanks has also helped to design curriculum of the weeklong game design workshop and will be helping to instruct the workshop. “Participating in the creation of games facilitates young people to explore their interest in technology and how their formal and informal learning journeys can help them transform their passions into career opportunities. That starts with fostering those interests through exposure to different mediums,” explains Ebanks. “The process of making games will develop skills in critical thinking, problem-solving and time management. All skill sets that are important to have in the technology industry. I am excited to be part of this workshop and hope that participants leave feeling inspired to explore their interests.”

Attendees will be provided with all of the game making materials required and will have the opportunity to create game pieces using a 3D printer. The five-day workshop takes place at Strathvale House, 90 North Church Street and runs from Monday to Friday 16-20 August. Applications are now being accepted and the registration fee is CI $150 per student, which includes lunch, snacks and workshop tools and equipment including craft paper, pens and a 3D printer.
