Game-jam-barcelona

On the 28th and 29th September, a group of 50 secondary students from 10 different schools around Catalunya will be participating in a 48h Game Jam. This is the 1st #GameJamBarcelona and it has been organised by St. Peter’s, ENTI-Escola de Noves Tecnologies Interactives-, and the Citilab in Cornellà.

Within a short span of time, the participants in this  #GameJamBarcelona  will plan, design, and create one or more games. Not only will the students plan, code and design a videogame, but also they will do it with a specific objective: to develop a game that helps smart citiziens to save energy and act responsibly with the environment.

Yesterday, all the participants took part in a training session at the Citilab facilities.

The centres who are taking part in this GameJam are St. Peter’s School, Col·legi Solc, Oak House de Barcelona, Agora Sant Cugat, Maristes de Badalona, Institut Quercus, Nostra Senyora de Montserrat, de Rubí, Escola Garbí, Institut Cornellà, Institut Martí i Pol and Institut Vilatzara.

JamToday supports the creation, implementation and deployment of educational games by creating methods and tools and by providing a central learning hub for participating organisations that will ensure that stakeholders maintain a balanced understanding of the main issues, and the implementation hurdles that need to be overcome.

Our Game Jam has been organised following its philosophy.

For the St. Peter’s Scholarship Committee it is a great pleasure to announce that finally Raquel Sánchez Herrera (Pre-U 0), Jerico Adgan (Pre-U 1) and Faith Asilo (Pre-U 1) are the students awarded with the 3rd edition of Maria Rosa Culell Scholarships for Excellence. After one week of class, Raquel, Jerico and Faith feel at home. They really think that these scholarships “are an opportunity. Daring to face the challenge is just the beginning”.

Raquel is from Badalona, and studied at Institut Ventura Gassol until  the last school year. One of her teachers told her about our Scholarships and she had no doubt. Jerico and Faith were studying together in Poble Sec and they saw the announcement of the grants on our website. They have it clear: some day they want to change the world for the better. So, let’s start! Welcome to St. Peter’s School!

This school year the grant honors our former pupil, Andrés Sexto.
