Game Changers: Girls' eSports League

 In 2020, girls from New Zealand and Australia were asked to design the perfect eSports League for girls. The girls were very clear that they wanted the following five things:

1. Make their own games (any platform)

2. Connect with other girls (and allies) who love to game 

3. Play each other's games and give feedback

4. Vote on the best game designed for competition

5. Compete using that game

And... that's how

The Game Changers

Girls' (and allies) eSports League

got started!

Join us.

We meet every Wednesday at 12:30 in Digi

Hi GameChangers,

We have two fine opportunities for design activity this term, both using Minecraft Education as the core design tool.  You can join in one or both. Your students will be supported for both programs in the GameChanger Girls 2024 FLIP space. Don’t forget to send me your student names to register them in FLIP.

1. GameChanger Girls Esports Game Design

Last email update I reminded you of the schedule for GameChangers Esports Game Design. You could see it below if you missed it. In this competition your students design an esports game that the community will judge, and we might compete over later in the year.

    2. Girls Who Game Design Challenge (DELL International program)

This is where students design a solution to a challenge facing society, based on a theme and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The first level 1 challenge for this year focuses on bringing together AI, smart cities, indigenous knowing and healthy communities.

The Challenge:

How can we, as young innovators, leverage the power of emerging technologies like AI to design a sustainable community that blends the vibrant energy of smart cities, the tranquility of healthy ecosystems, and the timeless wisdom of Indigenous ways of knowing?

Guiding Question:

How might you use Design Thinking to create a solution in Minecraft Education and share your final pitch in a video that is 5 minutes or less with the GWG community?

Should you want to be part of this challenge you will need to REGISTER on the official Girls Who Game for Australia and New Zealand. I will receive notification of your registration so that I can support you.

Let's DO This!
