The New York City Economic
Development Corporation, the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), and
TreSensa are seeking volunteer mentors for the GenTech Spring Break Game Jam for NYC high school students!
This is a great opportunity for
you and your friends who have tech, digital art or design backgrounds to coach low-income NYC
high school students in game development and design.
The Spring Break Game
Jam aims to provide New York City high school students from under-resourced
communities with the opportunity to learn about professional game development
and to build related technical skills. Over the course of a weekend and with the support of volunteer mentors,
each student team will create a mobile game that runs on the TreSensa Game
Engine and work on a 3-min pitch presentation to showcase their work.
recruiting three types of mentors for the event:
1. Developers: Volunteers with high-level
students to build games running on the TreSensa Game Engine.
2. Digital Artists: Volunteers with
digital art skills who can help students produce game assets such as sprites
and sprite sheet animations.
3. Game Designers: Volunteers with game
design experience that can advise students in game pacing, difficulty scaling,
and refining the levels they create.
