Jones Jam 2020

Jones Jam, CPS's largest video game jam, is back for its second year! Students from all over Chicago come together and as teams work together to design a video game by the end of this 12 hour event. Students do not need to know any special skills like coding or pixel art in order to participate! Our workshops will teach them everything they need in order to be successful at the event. 
There will also be games, friendly competitions, and other fun activities! Students will be able to make new friends, express their creativity, and learn new skills at this event. People of all skill levels will find a place at Jones Jam, whether it be expert coders or people brand new to computer science. We highly encourage people to bring friends with them too for the best experience!
The event runs from 8 am to 8 pm at the Jones College Prep Library on Friday, January 31st, a non-attendance day for students. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided. To sign up and view a full schedule, please visit
