Years 9-12 and TAFE (technical and further education) students had the opportunity to discover everything there is to know about computer games, over the seven-day period. The camp broadcast live for a global audience via the internet.
Deputy Dean of the Monash Faculty of Information Technology Professor Maria Garcia de la Banda said the camp is a fantastic opportunity for young students.
“They can participate in workshops and hear from designers and game developers from around the world. It is a great chance to learn more about the industry for those thinking of pursuing study in IT,” Professor Garcia de la Banda said.
The CGBC is a hands-on, interactive, industry engagement event, which has been running since 2009. The event has evolved and diversified into far more than just games, now providing presentations, workshops, industry showcases, and course information on careers and pathways.
This event is ideal for those wanting to learn more about how games are designed and built, or have interests in other areas of multimedia and information and communications technology.
