A video game which started as a Year 9 Community Project has been launched internationally on the App Store. The project continues to create opportunities for EC graduates Josh Caratelli and Liam Mclachlan.
Josh and Liam launched Smog Game on the Apple App Store in October 2015. A pretty big feat at just 18 years of age and in their first year of university.
They also won the National Secondary School iAward at the AIIA industry awards in August and will represent Australia in the international round at the APICTA awards in Colombo, Sri Lanka.
Furthermore, Josh and EC teacher Nick England will speak at the Education in Games summit for teachers on Thursday 29 October. The summit will explore how gaming technology can be linked with curriculum and the potential career opportunities beyond school.
Community Projects give students the chance to create projects close to their heart and work in in ‘real life’ situations. Josh and Liam put a lot of extra work into a project they were very passionate about and now they are reaping amazing rewards.
Smog Game teaches kids about how to reduce their ‘Smog’ carbon footprint.You can see the trailer on the website: http://www.smog-game.com/
