Become a judge!
The Australian STEM Video Game Challenge judging panel is comprised of volunteers from the education, game development and technology sectors.
Each year games are judged in a three-round process.
Round 1 (9-14 August, 2023)
- This is a quality assurance round where judges check that games play and that there is content in the GDD. This is a great round to be a part of if you are new to the STEM VGC or do not have a teaching or tech background.
Round 2 (18-28 August, 2023)
- In this round judges receive a random selection of playable games and use the STEM Video Game Challenge rubrics to determine a score and provide written feedback to teams. Judges in this round require a sound knowledge of at least one of the category platforms. Ideally, judges will have experience using rubrics and providing student feedback. If you are a digital technology teacher, this is your round!
Round 3 (1-11 September, 2023)
- This is round is for experienced tech teachers and industry experts. Judges in this round receive a random selection of finalist games and use the STEM Video Game Challenge rubrics to determine a score and provide written feedback to teams. Judging in this round requires in-depth knowledge of coding languages and extensive experience with gaming platforms. Teams that generate the highest score in this round are declaired the winner.
