STEM in Video Game Design

Workshop LeadersKatya Hott, E-Line Media; Jennifer Thompson, Brooklyn Public Library

This workshop covers the foundations of game design and how to use game design in a learning environment. Through hands-on physical and digital design activities, we will explore how game design can be effective in teaching core 21st century skills like systems thinking, problem solving, and critical thinking.  We will also cover how to design for the 2013 National STEM Video Game Challenge, which is partially supported by IMLS.
