About the Event

GGJ NEXT® is an annual event operated by the Global Game Jam® organization to serve younger people (12-17 years old) who are interested in learning the creation of video games.

Similar to the primary GGJ® event in January every year, GGJ NEXT® is designed to stimulate collaboration and teamwork; it is not a competition.

Leadership Committee

The event is run by a small international team of volunteers banded together to try to share in our collective knowledge of game development and collaboration to present a curriculum for educators to bring game development to classrooms, after school programs and community groups all around the world. Our GGJ NEXT™ Team Dr. Ali Arya, Ph.D. Dr. Matthew Farber, Ed.D. Michael Gi, Prof. Susan Gold, MFA Dr. Kevin Miklasz, Ph.D Prof. Ian Schreiber, MFA Prof. Christopher Totten, MA, Brendon Trombley.
