A What Now?

Come Watch or Try Your Hand At Making Games for Kids

PBSKids is hosting a 48 Hour Game Jam and inviting you to come join as a team to learn, experience and try your hand at making a game!

Any skill level is invited! From teams just starting out to experts in the field. We feel everyone will learn something and come out with a new perspective on designing for kids.

Hosted inside MAGLabs. Enjoy the festival if you need some inspiration or a quick break from jamming! Jammers will have a chance to enjoy the festival Saturday and Sunday while their games are voted on.

PBSKids staff will be there to help guide and answer questions during the event. A panel will start the Jam with some helpful info on how to design for kids. A public and private vote will take place at the end.

Network, learn, collaborate, invent but most of all have fun learning about a unique field of game design!

We could see early on that these games were actually helping kids understand some key skills.
