Interested Grade 11 or 12 students with a knack for game development will surely have memorable and fun-filled summer learning about the basics of game development, which will combine elements of design, programming, and art.

The participants of the program have two options to choose from, the Game Programming track of the Game Arts track.

Next in line is the Workshop on Impact Evaluation Design and Methods, which will run from 13 to 20 May 2019.

This workshop will include laboratory sessions that will teach participants about the different impact evaluation designs and gain theoretical, econometric and practical skills in designing, conducting and managing impact evaluations, among others.

It will cover sample size calculation, randomisation designs, mechanics of randomising, basic commands, basic programming, statistics in STATA, quasi-experimental methods, data management, regression analysis, and analysis of survey data and others.
