Girls in Gaming

Mission Statement

Girls in Gaming is dedicated to creating a fun and collaborative space for young women to explore the technical and creative possibilities of video game development. Our goal is to inspire the next generation of designers, creators, and engineers.

Give your students an insider’s view of the video game industry and teach them how logic, collaboration and creative problem solving can make great things happen.

How It Works

Girls in Gaming has been designed to make it as easy for teachers and as fun for students as possible. Give us a little bit of space and up to 20 female and gender-diverse participants and we handle the rest.

We’ll bring the tech and, most importantly, the instructors from Manitoba’s booming video game industry. These video game professionals will deliver an engaging full-day session on game design that is sure to get your students talking (and thinking).

Background

Video games are the ultimate collision of science and art. Music, writing, art and code all come together to create a truly unique expression. Girls in Gaming wants to give young women and gender diverse students the chance to learn how it all comes together and all the incredible opportunities that come from a career in video games.

For over five years, Girls in Gaming has partnered with schools throughout the province to provide a full day of collaborative hands-on learning for young women and gender diverse students in grades 7 to 9. Students get the unique opportunity to learn directly from women working in game development, participate in creating a simple game, and explore career possibilities.
