2017 STEM Video Game Challenge Winners
Before we announce the winners we would like to send a BIG thank-you to all our judges who have suffered sleepless nights and worked very hard over the last few weeks.
We would especially like to congratulate and thank all those that entered this year’s challenge. The standard of the entries we received has been very high and our judges have been very impressed. All those that entered have displayed an abundance of ingenuity and creativity and should be proud of the work they have produced.
We will be sending out certificates to all students that participated in this year’s challenge, and for those that made it through to Phases 2 & 3 of the judging process we will provide you with some feedback from the judges on your game. The certificates and feedback will be posted out to your Mentors over the coming weeks.
