BUFFALO, N.Y. — Smart high school students came together Saturday to develop some video games.

This was all a part of the Queen City High School Game Jam at Buffalo Game Space, which is a local nonprofit that is dedicated to helping people create games. The event was fully funded by AT&T.

Their team of developers, musicians, artists and mentors helped the students build their games, and hopefully inspire them for careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

"Buffalo is in a real great need for developers, musicians, artists," said Arsenio Colon, a Buffalo Game Space board member. "And like, I don't think that's gonna stop any time soon. That need's just gonna increase year after year."

There also was an all-girls student team to help bridge the gender and diversity gap in the industry.
