LOCATION:

Center Slope Location: 310 7th Avenue (at 8th street)

OPEN TO:

All girls that like gaming! Ages 6.5-14.

FOCUS:

Too often, gaming is seen as a boys' activity. One of the central goals of our organization is to debunk that myth. Parents come to us regularly, curious about the programming, but unsure if it'll be a good fit for their daughter. Every time those girls give gaming a try, they love it. We've made great strides towards gender parity in the lab, but we wanted to take it a step further. That's why we started Great Women of Gaming. This is a free club developed by our female staff members which highlights a different prominent women in history every session. Games are selected and designed to delve deeper into the week's theme. We've been excited to watch this group grow with each passing semester...
