Women* Developers: Game Design x Cybersecurity (Grade 8-10)
UBC Geering Up presents Women* Developers: Game Design x Cybersecurity for girls* in Grades 8 to 10.
Hosted in collaboration with the Vancouver Independent School for Science and Technology, Vancouver's first STEM-dedicated high school, this time, we are exploring both cybersecurity and game design as promising careers! As the gaming industry continues to expand and become the world's largest entertainment industry, the need for secure gaming platforms is all the more necessary. From protecting personal data to building security directly into the game development process, there is a lot of ground to uncover at the intersection of these industries. Where do women* fit in into this equation of cybersecurity and game design? Good news! We are continuing to see an increase in women* entering the workforce in both sectors. Join our Women* Developers event to build new worlds as you apply game design principles and learn how to build security into the games you invent.
For our panelists, akin to our definition for participating girls*, all cis and trans girls, genderqueer or non-binary people, and those who identify as other gender minorities are welcome.
