Get in the Game, Free GameMaker Course
Okay, I can remember getting my first NES back in the day, coping the Game-Boy, and Sega and having ideas and dreams about building and developing my own game. I did dream of working for EA Sports using my passion for Sports to make me marketable creating better versions of Madden and NBA Live. Well, after my first Gaming class in College I was highly discouraged to even apply for any Gaming job – plus I kind of fell off of the gaming systems.
But, with Microsoft’s Virtual Academy – making video games can be fun and according to their site doesn’t require you to be a programmer (which means theoretically anyone can do it!).

This may be a great idea for a weekend STEM project. But we’ll see. Please let me know if you or anyone you know gives it a try!
