Digital Schoolhouse, in partnership with Kucheza Gaming, Edu360, WaterAid and Into Games have announced the first Mobo Game Jam.
Mobo Game Jam is an international game-making challenge which will see young innovators from the UK and Nigeria compete to create games that combine creativity, compassion and computational thinking to solve a worldwide problem.
Individuals and teams aged 8-18 must submit a game or game concept that explores how to achieve a future where everyone has access to clean water. Entries must meet a brief set by WaterAid, which has been bought to life in a mini film by the renowned storyteller Grandma Wura, a fictional character created by Proud African Roots.
Kids and teens keen to take part will have from 10:00am GMT on Thursday 17 December 2020 to 23:59pm GMT on Thursday 4 February 2021 to submit their game prototypes via video submission. Entrants will be allowed to submit their prototypes digitally or physically.

Participants will also receive free virtual masterclasses from industry experts to help improve their digital skills. Additionally, the Game Jam aims to encourage cultural exchange between entrants by promoting inclusivity, sustainability, and humanity in their ideas.
