The video game developer, Valve, has launched a new initiative to encourage students to pursue careers in the video game industry. The program is called Pipeline, which launched over the weekend, aims to give students the right insight on how to start their push towards a video game career.

Pipeline will follow a group of high school interns at Valve in an attempt to encourage teenagers who are considering a career in video game development, through answering questions and providing a more direct way to engage with Valve as a company.

Valve admitted that it “has been a very good place for very experienced video game developers, and not so good at teaching people straight out of school.” They explained that Pipeline is meant as an experiment, “to see if we can take a group of high school students with minimal work experience and train them in the skills and methods necessary to be successful at a company like Valve.”

More information about the project is set to be released within the next month or so. You can see all the currently available information on the official website. You can also watch the intro video below:
