Game Showcase


On Tuesday, Girlstart will participate in the Game On Conference at AMD. We're thrilled to have the opportunity to share our experiences with educational game development.

Last summer campers created their own frogger games using AgentSheets, a unique software authoring environment where users of all ages can build games, interactive demonstrations, simulations, and more! 93% of our summer camp participants want to create more games after Girlstart.
