It’s a race to the release party as these small indie game studios pitch, design and build an issue-focused video game in just 5 days!

Beta Masters follows a real-world production process for planning and developing innovative game prototypes just like the pros. With a passion for social entrepreneurship, students develop video game concepts with a Global Goals focus and take them from ideation to completion in 5 days. They will push their computational learning to the next level, creating original graphics with Piskel and bringing them to life using the powerful, cloud-based game engine, Construct 3, all with one goal in mind: securing seed investments from friends and family at Friday’s beta release party!

What you will learn at Beta Masters:

  • The core concepts of computer programming and video game design
  • How to build a technical game design document
  • Strategies for critical thinking and problem-solving
  • Best practices for public speaking—ability to pitch and present work
  • Exploration of the U.N. Global Goals for Sustainable Development

“Beta Masters is a great program that covers all aspects of STEM! My students had a great time creating their own video games!”
