Explore the various components of game design using this SciGirls activity to challenge students to create their own game. What is a game? How is it different from a puzzle, a toy, or any other fun activity? People don't universally agree on what makes a game, but generally accepted components include: rules, decision making, goals, interaction, and potential for change each time the game is played. Your students play games all the time. Now, SciGirls challenges them to create their own!
