Yorkshire Games Festival Schools Day

An extra-special day for your class to turbo-charge their core skills in coding, videogame development and problem solving, with an eye on future careers.

Learning to problem solve is a valuable skill for life, and the basis for tackling other disciplines in STEM subjects.

This unique day-long learning package, part of Yorkshire Games Festival, will challenge your class to solve a variety of problems throughout the day, testing their skills and giving them new methods and approaches that will help them achieve their full potential in a variety of cross-curricular subjects.

Your day kicks off with a live science show in our Pictureville cinema. Your students will learn about the first ever computer programme, the breaking of the German Enigma machine and the maths behind the first successful rocket launches with bold and fun science demonstrations to get them ready for the day ahead.

Next, you’ll explore a personalised itinerary of in-depth workshops, small group challenges and access to our unique collection. With a treat visit to our Games Lounge, lunch spaces and a host of resources to take back to your classroom, your class will have a day they’ll never forget. Who says STEM is boring?

Our specially-curated day will inspire your class and encourage them to develop new skills while they learn through participation and fun, all taken care of by our team of expert Explainers.
