Science Fest – Designing Games for Anxiety

14th October, at Codebase 9:30-1:30pm

Are you interested in how games are made? Want to learn more about how games help with anxiety and mental health?

Codebase is running a workshop on ‘Designing Games for Anxiety’ where you will take part in three stages of game development.

The first part of the workshop involves coming up with an idea. Activities are focused on brainstorming and problem-solving. The second part of the workshop involves paper prototyping (like card and board games). How do we play our game idea? What rules are needed? What happens at the end? Finally, we play-test the games we’ve made.

The purpose of these workshops is to help young people understand the concept of game design, user-centered design, and mental health. We will also explore how beneficial involving young people in the design process of game development can be.

Bring your own laptop if possible.

This free workshop is for ages 10-17 yrs. Parents are welcome to stay for the duration of the workshop.
