BTN – Young game designers

This BTN article was about a program called Game On where year 8 students got into groups to create video games. Here are some things I learnt about the program from this article:

The video games had to encourage maths and science and have aboriginal culture in it. They were split into groups to come up with a great video game and the winning one would be developed for real. The judges wanted to see games that were fun and educational to choose.

Two things I understood were that, video games are recently popular and that this project was to put education into it. I also understood that the project taught kids to program and design and got them involved.

The question I had about it was if the game that won will become popular? I hope it will because it would be great to encourage maths and science into video games.
