Wednesday, June 4, 2014 - 9:30pm to 11:30pm

Presented by Game:Play Lab (OCAD U) and the Play in Computer Environments (Play:CES) Research Team (York U)

On behalf of the Play in Computer Environments (Play:CES) Research Team (York University) and Game:Play Lab (Ontario College of Art & Design University), we cordially invite you to an end of year showcase to celebrate the videogame development work of elementary and high school students across Toronto.

Hosted by the OCAD U Open Gallery, this interactive evening will be focused on the play and presentation of creative videogames made by young people across Toronto.

Refreshments will be served.
Games will be played.
Speakers start at 6pm.

This year, the Play:CES Research Lab has supported over 100 young people across the Greater Toronto Area in videogame development projects. Led by Faculty of Education Professor Jennifer Jenson and a remarkable team of TDSB teachers and Play:CES staff-mentors, participants aged 11-16 have designed and programmed their very own videogames. Come play their games, learn to make game modifications, and talk about the exciting opportunities for young people in the professional game development industry. Bring your family and friends!

Kids Get Game and other Play:CES projects aim to interrupt ongoing inequities with regard to access to technology in our often under-resourced schools, with a particular focus on giving girls and young women the opportunity to engage in videogame development and design. This project was generously sponsored by the Motorola Solutions Foundation.
