One games website says that ‘BAFTA hopes to demystify game development for young people in the UK, while highlighting important areas of education such as mathematics, physics and computer science which are essential for those looking to enter the video games industry.’
Chelsea Academy students joined others from local schools for a series of game workshops. Last year’s winning game, created by a team of 15 year-olds, was renamed Stick ‘Em Up and is a free app in the iTunes Store.
