Join CBC Kids to learn How Video Games Are Made!

CBC Kids and the Western Manitoba Regional Library are offering free, limited-space sessions in Brandon for kids aged 7-10 who are Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit or Métis) or are newcomers to Canada (for example, families who have arrived within the last five years or so), and interested in an introduction to how video games are made!

This program will happen at our downtown Brandon and Shoppers Mall branches on Saturday, November 19th.

In each session, CBC Kids TV host Tony Kim will take kids on a fun and engaging journey into the world of video games. Participants will learn what goes into making a video game for cbckids.ca, including elements of game design, game mechanics and the different jobs that are involved in video game production. The group will brainstorm a video game idea, and at the end of the program, CBC Kids Senior Digital Producer Jeff Santos and Creative Producer Lenard Monkman are on hand to answer any questions from participants interested in taking their interest to the next level.

Please note, this isn’t a coding or programming course, but a general introduction into the elements of video game development and production. The 50-60 minute session will take place in English and participants are not required to bring anything.

Parents: if you have questions, please email: programs@nullwmrl.ca or cbckids@nullcbc.ca. If you’d like to register your child, please fill out this form.
