48 HOURS
The Women in Computer Science Game Jam is an event that takes place from **Friday, September 23rd at 5PM to Sunday, September 25th at 6PM**. You have 48 hours to create a video game, and like most game jams, this means staying overnight (or as late as you can!) to finish your game. Game jams are **intense, exciting, and a ton of fun!** CREATE VIDEO GAMES You can create **any kind of game you want,** and we're going to announce a **theme** the day of the event to provide inspiration. WICS wants to help you earn game development, team dynamic, and project **experience** from this event. You **do not need game development experience**, but experience in coding, art, or music helps! We recommend you use GameMaker if you don't already have experience in any relevant skills. There will also be **tutorials on fast game development** provided the day of the event. WHO CAN PARTICIPATE This event is hosted by Women in Computer Science at LSU, but **college and high school students of any gender** can participate. Students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a **chaperone** the whole time they are present at the jam site. You can come **with or without a team** - we'll match you up with people if you don't have one already!
