National win for St Anthony’s student video game creators

27 September 2019

A Year Six team of girls from St Anthony’s School in Wanneroo wowed judges in the Australian STEM Video Game Challenge with their game Locked Up. 

Lesay Asefa, Emily Freeman and Veronica Walters, with the support of their teacher Mr Wynne, designed and built the game as a class project during Term 2, and on judging earnt 465 out of a possible 500 points – enough to claim the title of Open Platform winners for Years Five to Eight. 

The team will be heading to PAX in Melbourne during the holidays to be presented with their prizes. 

The STEM Video Game Challenge, open to students in Years Five to 12, required the girls to write their own code, troubleshoot issues in development and stick to the theme of their game. 

Locked Up was created using the Gamestar Mechanic platform, where it is now available to be played.
