School Trips

Inspiring students to learn new skills, get creative and make games!

We are proud to have welcomed thousands of students from all around the country, giving them a chance to learn about the rich history of videogames, make their own videogames and, of course, play games! We believe videogames are a powerful and inspiring tool that allows young people to explore their creativity, gain valuable STEM knowledge and skills and have fun while learning.
