Geekend Arcade: Where Kids Create NOT Just Consume

The Geekend Arcade - Three Years Strong. Submit Student Games Today.

Savannah, GA (May 05, 2016)

It’s never too early to start – We believe that it’s important to teach kids how to code. Why? It’s like learning a new language! It helps them to better understand the digital world that surrounds them, and it develops problem-solving skills – sounds good, right?22630209291_488f869ab7_z

It’s obvious that kids can’t be missing from our annual tec hnology, innovation and entrepreneurship conference, Geekend! Last year we showcased around 40 games built by 4th-8th grade students from the community, and almost 200 people had fun playing with them. It was great to see the kids inspired by their peers’ work and the proud parents when their kid’s game was showcased! Check out last year’s games here!

With two year’s of Geekend Arcade success under our belts, our goal is bigger for this year – we want more games, more kids, and more members of the community to be involved. We’re excited about working together with some amazing schools and organizations that teach kids to code. We’d love to work with you as well!

The venue is The Guild Hall, the home of coders, makers, designers, gamers, performers, and storytellers – the perfect place to get involved with technology and games! Seriously, check out their STEAM Summer Camps!
