New Event – Arctic Climate Game Jam!
April 21 – 30, 2017
What is a Climate Game Jam?
Teams gather to rapidly design game prototypes (online, pervasive, tabletop, or other formats) that make learning about climate change more fun, engaging, and accessible to a range of audiences.
Arctic Climate Game Jam! April 21 – 30, 2017
Join us for a new game jam that challenges students, educators, scientists, and game designers to develop games that help people learn about the impacts of and solutions to climate change in the Arctic. The event is open to participants throughout the US, Canada, other Arctic-rim nations, and anyone else interested in the region! Teams will develop digital or analog games that utilize scientific data, local observations, and Indigenous Knowledge to help people better understand the local and global impacts of a rapidly changing Arctic and what we can do to address these challenges.
Video: What is a Climate Game Jam?
Learn about game formats for games and specific information about Twine prototypes and Scratch in the Hack-a-Game category for the Climate Game Jam. Speakers: Kevin Miklasz, Alex Fleming, Matthew Farber
The polar regions are early warning signs of climate change and are facing more rapid changes that in other areas of Earth. Join this discussion of the dramatic changes at the poles. Speaker: Stephanie Pfirman.
Learn about sea level rise and public domain climate information from NOAA and other federal science agencies. Find out how to access libraries of images and visualizations that are free to use in game design. Speakers: Bruce Moravchik and Peg Steffen.
Climate game firstly appeared as a prototype made from our team at an online game jam, but later when we saw that the project was a big success, we decided to roll it out as a beta version, and later as an official fully functional legal casino game. Climate game is one of the most popular legal casino games that you can find in any online casino. This is one of the best slots games out there because it offers high casino bonus, really high stake, and allows you to win a big bucket of real money.
On our site, you can find different types of casino games. Beside slots games you can choose from roulette, blackjack, video poker, etc., basically, we have all kind of casino games for different types of people. Our servers are not region locked, so you can get accesses no matter where you are located.
Leveraging Arctic Science for STEM Education and Citizen Empowerment
The Arctic Climate Game Jam was inspired by the 2016 Arctic Science Ministerial meeting. The gathering brought together Science Ministers from 24 countries to discuss Arctic research themes and develop international science collaborations. A key theme of the meeting focused on using Arctic science as a vehicle for STEM education and citizen empowerment. By promoting learning and engagement through game design, we hope to promote innovative approaches to education during an Arctic STEM Summit that will be held during the Finnish Chairmanship of the Arctic Council (2017-2019).
