Microsoft Store, AIE partner to offer three-hour game design workshops in Sydney
Welcome to the Xbox Academy, schoolkids!
The Sydney Microsoft Store will soon launch the Xbox Academy, “a videogame-fueled educational establishment” that runs over school holidays in April this year.
The program will launch in partnership with the Academy of Interactive Entertainment (AIE), and will offer three-hour workshops to eager game designers.
Course content includes:
- Game Programming: How to Build an Adventure Game
- Game Design: Design the Next Blockbuster
- Develop Games on Xbox One S
Those that complete a free workshop will be given a certificate of completion for their efforts. Xbox swag will also be awarded to students.
The program will run over 10-22 April at the Pitt Street Microsoft Store in Sydney, and is open to any student after 14+. The workshops are free to those who register — you can do so here.
Have fun if you decide to register!
