Learning Games Lab Sessions

The Learning Games Lab develops educational games, animations, interactives, and apps. Most years, we host free, week-long summer sessions for middle school students. In some years, we also host sessions for elementary school students or high schoolers. Occasionally, we also host shorter sessions during the school year.

During these sessions, Games Lab consultants play and evaluate games and other interactive experiences like VR, participate in design activities, and may pitch a game to our team. They work in teams, explore digital and tabletop games, and give developers product feedback to improve design.
