The STEM Video Game Challenge returns for 2017

This year's theme is Reaction.

Registrations for the 2017 Australian STEM Video Game Challenge have opened, with an all new theme, Reaction.

The challenge is a national competition open to all Australian students in Years 5-12. The competition is completely free to enter, and represents a great opportunity for upper primary and secondary students to engage in hands-on, inquiry-driven learning spanning the areas of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) in a fun, exciting and challenging way.

Students are able to enter in teams of 1-4 members and are encouraged to work collaboratively to design and build a working and playable original video game based on STEM in response to a core theme.

Facilitated by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) and supported by leading organisations at the cross-section of education, information technology, entrepreneurial innovation and entertainment, exists to help engage Australian students with STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines in a new and exciting way, and to facilitate self-motivated and enjoyable learning that inspires and prepares the next generation of Australian students for the future.

Registrations are now open for both students and mentors, for more information and to register you can check the official site. You can also read the Theme Information and Information Booklet.

The competition will run through to Friday 25 August, 2017.
