Welcome to the STEM Video Game Challenge! This exciting event celebrates the creative, inspiring, and educational world of video games. We invite you to join us and showcase your talents in this thrilling competition.

The theme for the 2023 STEM Video Game Challenge is “Construction/Destruction.” Get ready to embark on an epic journey of building and smashing, breaking through barriers to reach new heights. Your challenge is to create a game that involves construction, destruction, or a unique combination of both.

Gather your friends and form a team of up to four members. Don’t forget to find a mentor who can guide you through the process. This is your chance to demonstrate your skills and passion for game development!

Categories are divided based on your age group and the platform you choose for your game. Whether you’re in Year 4-6, Year 7-9, or Year 9-12, there’s a category tailored to your skills. All platforms used must be free or available for education, ensuring a level playing field for all participants.

As for the prizes, they vary each year based on our generous sponsors. While we can’t reveal the specific rewards yet, we can promise that each team member (and guardian, if under 18) will receive a pass to PAX if it’s running as a live event. The awards ceremony will take place in Melbourne, and if you can’t attend, arrangements can be made with your school.

The winning team will have the opportunity to showcase their game and game design document (GDD) at PAX, where visitors can play and admire your creation. Additionally, a panel discussion on gaming and education awaits you, providing valuable insights into the industry.

Get ready to unleash your creativity and skills in the STEM Video Game Challenge. Embrace the world of gaming, where learning and fun converge, and pave the way for a thrilling and rewarding experience!
