Game Dev in a Day (Game DIAD): Building Games for Mental Health, Wellbeing or Fitness

Game DIAD Is a two-day hands-on workshop that takes you through one rotation in the iterative development cycle of a game and provides essential training to build a game from scratch, taking you from concept to a first prototype. This learning experience, designed for post-secondary school students from any background, discipline, faculty, or department will bring together 100 aspiring developers to the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus to learn how to design, develop, and test a digital game.  Working in teams of 10, teams will participate in this learning jam and acquire the skills needed to take game ideas to a prototype.

What’s in it for you?

  • Learn by doing
  • Energize your practice and make new connections
  • Work as part of a team to advance your design chops
  • Beef up your portfolio with a smart, new design
  • Surprise yourself by how much you can do in a matter of days

Participants receive custom Game DIAD gear, and food will be provided throughout the weekend so you have the energy you need to take on the challenge. A free daily shuttle is available between the Waterloo and Stratford campuses.

Who can attend?

  • Post-Secondary school (University or College) students

Registration is now closed. To be added to the waitlist contact bgillett@uwaterloo.ca.
