National Climate Game Jam Competition

Background

For each Climate Game Jam, game ideas are submitted via a 2-minute video to be considered for national recognition. A panel of game and climate experts use a scoring rubric to determine top selections by age category and/or game category. Category winners are featured on this website and in social media. Select finalists are offered the opportunity to have their game showcased in a public arcade, for exampe, at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History.
