The Australian STEM Video Game 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. Able to work in teams of up to four (4) members, students 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). Theme: REACTION! A reaction is a response to some treatment, situation, or stimulus. Reactions occur in a number of different ways and in a number of different situations. From the way we interact with each other, to complex scientific procedures, reactions are happening everywhere! This year, the Australian STEM Video Game Challenge is looking for games that explore or address the theme of ‘REACTION!’ How you and your team incorporate this theme into your game is completely up to you! We’re looking for creative, engaging and fun responses to the theme – they can be very literal and direct, or highly conceptual. Let your imagination run wild!
