Learning Games Lab

Summer Games Lab Think Tank Sessions

The Learning Games Lab develops educational games, animations, interactives, and apps. This summer we will host four sessions in-person for middle school students, each session will be a week-long. We invite students entering grades 6th, 7th and 8th during the 2023-2024 school year to apply to be Games Lab consultants. Sessions will be held at the Learning Games Lab, located in Gerald Thomas Hall.

During the week-long session, Games Lab consultants will play and evaluate games and other interactive experiences like VR, participate in design activities, and pitch a game idea. Session projects will enhance consultants’ media literacy and design skills, while also exposing them to possible career paths in the industry.

Participants should sign up for a session. Consultants will only participate in one session.
