NYC Haunts at MS 391 - Storyboarding for Belmont Game 

Yesterday Global Kids Leaders in our NYC Haunts program at MS 391 learned how to storyboard their ideas. After being split into groups, they discussed story lines and characters that could highlight some of the most interesting areas they discovered in the Belmont neighborhood while keeping in mind possible social issues that could be addressed. The groups presented their ideas to one another and shared thoughts on how they could possibly be combined.

With funds provided by the AMD Foundation, Global Kids youth leaders have been working with E-Line media to develop their first collaborative AMD Social Impact Game Design Challenge, which launched this month: Playing For Peace. Youth around the country are being asked to use Gamestar Mechanic to design games promoting peace and the end of war.

These high school students chose the topic of ending war, developed the challenge game about two societies in conflict over shared water resources, worked on the design brief and banner, and will be amongst the team of judges.

The challenge ends April 30, 2012. The top prize winner will win an AMD-powered laptop, a three year Premium Subscription to Gamestar Mechanic, and a personalized t-shirt featuring original Gamestar Mechanic artwork and a screenshot of their game.

NYC Haunts at Seward Park - Ghost and Found Debuts! 

After many long hours and hard work, the Lower East Side NYC Haunts game Ghost and Found was completed and presented to youth at the Seward Park brand of the New York Public Library. Global Kids Leaders Cindy and Queena led the group on an interactive tour through the neighborhood using their game as a way to educate about the past. The girls engaged the students in conversations about the importance of a safe working environment and encouraged everyone to sign the petition they created to request that the Garment Industry discontinues their use of sweatshops.

We will be updating soon with video footage from the day, for now check out some photos from the day!
