A Game Girl Workshop is a short and intensive workshop where young girls are inspired to have fun with technology. The girls get introduced to audio, graphic and coding programs in order to build their own computer game – based on their own imagination and experiences.
Nevin Erönde and Andrea Hasselager began Game Girl Workshop as a response to the significant lack of women working in the games and technology industry. Through positive motivation and inspiration, Nevin and Andrea create a dynamic learning environment in which the teenage girls discover the various methods of game development – with the objective of providing them with, both educational and professional, skills in order to take advantage of the upcoming opportunities in the computer science industries of the future.
Ultimately, the hope of Game Girl Workshop is for more women to be included and advance within the games and technology industry, thus helping to achieve a balance in the workforce and to create a multitude of game narratives.
