Every year, Girls Make Games runs 3 week long summer camps around the country. This year, 33 teams of girls between ages 8-17 learned how to design and program video games. Of those 33 teams, the top 5 made it out to Demo Day to pitch their games to a panel of industry judges.
This year’s winner: Team Sarcastic Shark Clouds with their game, Shredded Secrets! Please see game descriptions, trailer, team members and game prototypes below!
Shredded Secrets is an emotional journey through four characters and their experiences with school and life. This game shows how people from different backgrounds can overcome adversity together.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
