Celebrating 10 years!

Promoting digital literacy and collaboration through game development.

OGPC is a video game development competition for middle school and high school students that encourages teamwork while having loads of fun. Each year, OGPC announces a new theme, such as “Urban Planning”, “Internal Obstacles” and “Disaster Recovery.” Teams design the game rules and goals, write stories and characters, create visual art, record sound effects and music, and write computer code to make it all work. Then, at the main event, they present their work to professional judges and each other.

Game creation through OGPC encompasses the entire STEAM focus (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Design, and Mathematics) in one unified program. It bridges the disciplines in a way that most academic courses do not and encourages students with different talents to work together.
