PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Where Art & Technology Learn 2 Play

One of the fastest growing and most transformational community programs in the region today, the Mason Game & Technology Academy integrates all of the STEM core competencies in a challenging, fun, and engaging way. This program combines both the sciences and the arts, with creative & critical thinking and problem solving skills. Military and needs-based scholarships may be available.

Your Adventure in Game Design and CyberDefense begins here!

Don't just play games, start creating them! Your adventure begins here! Learn the fundamentals of designing a computer game for your computer or your phone. From there, you can “level up” with creating apps, game art/animation, 3D Game Design, game modding, and programming.
CyberDefense is here! You can also learn the foundations of the three pillars of a comprehensive CyberDefense education: Oracle SQL, Cisco, and Networking Administration (Microsoft).
The Mason Game & Technology Academy offers weeklong and weekend age-appropriate programs for students, ages 9-18, in the Fall, Spring and Summer on both the GMU Fairfax campus and the GMU Prince William campus, plus a Summer Program for ages 6-8 at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton.
