Summer Think Tank Opportunities for Youth Entering Grades 5-7:
*Indicates that these sessions are now full.
Accepting applications however at this time, space is limited. We will still accept applications to keep on file in case slots open as the summer progresses.
The Learning Games Lab offers Think Tank sessions each summer. Game consultants involved in Summer Think Tank sessions have an opportunity to test and evaluate games in development at NMSU or on the market. Through such evaluations, students are exposed to possible careers, terminology and design in the game development field, while building on writing, presentation and other communication skills. Session dates and times for the 2013 Summer Think Tanks will be announced in early April 2013. Check the site during that time to apply to applicable sessions. Selected consultants will be notified as soon as possible.
Expert Think Tank Opportunities
Outstanding consultants are asked to return to participate in sessions during the school year as Expert Consultants in the Learning Games Lab to engage in more in-depth learning opportunities.
