Welcome to the Interactive Experience Game Jam of 2017!

Pacific Science Center and AIE are partnering up for the first ever Game Jam focused on creating highly interactive experiences around a Pacific Science Center theme. IEGJ 2017 begins with a 7:00 pm kick-off on Friday, November 3rd and runs through 7:00pm on Sunday, November 5th. IEGJ will take place at the Pacific Science Center, filling the hallowed halls that the Terracotta Warriors recently departed, in other words, jamming in the shadow of awesome history.
