The 2023 theme of Black History Month is Black Resistance and the BSU has LOTS of events planned for the entire month. This week we have a student from LMU’s BSU coming to speak with our students about college life, on Tuesday Feb. 7th over zoom during lunch time – 12:25 – 12:50. If Mon/Thursday cohort students would like to join over zoom here is the link: https://us04web.zoom.us/j/6173950341?pwd=aDk4ZUVLV2wxdFd4YjRXUC9uVjRIUT09
Tying into the theme of Black Resistance, we are also having a screening of the movie The Woman King after school on Friday the 10th, which both cohorts are invited to attend.
Don’t forget to keep checking the Black facts and figures pasted around the school for the Battle Of The Advisories Kahoots coming soon 😉

The UCLA Game Lab Summer Institute introduces high school students to game-making as an artistic practice, teaching them techniques and tools to develop analog and digital games that reflect their own creative vision. No previous game-making skills are required. Students with an interest in games and visual arts will find the curriculum especially rewarding–and those who complete the two-week program receive 4 units of college credit!
This summer we’re featuring two sessions of the program: an online, virtual classroom version, as well as an in-person, residential program on campus at UCLA. The two sessions offer nearly identical instruction and game design projects—but now you can choose between an online or an on-campus experience! The dates for Summer 2023:
- Session A (online, virtual classroom): July 10, 2023 – July 21, 2023
- Session B (in-person, residential): July 23, 2023 – August 5, 2023
The Summer Institute program is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and we welcome students of all cultural, racial, gender, linguistic, geographic, and socioeconomic backgrounds and physical abilities.
Registration starts February 15 at the UCLA Summer Sessions website. Spaces in both programs are limited—and they tend to fill up pretty fast. So if you’re interested in learning all about game design this summer, please visit that site soon–and please read on to learn more about what makes the UCLA Game Lab Summer Institute so special!
