Think Tank Opportunities for Youth
Check back for opportunities throughout the year!
Through projects and hands-on activities, Learning Games Lab Consultants are exposed to the terminology and practice of game design – and build writing, presentation and communication skills – while being exposed to possible career paths in the industry.
Our Think Tanks are a project-based approach to developing youths' expertise in game design and evaluation. Consultants evaluate games, create with digital tools, reflect on their daily experiences, and build toward a final project showcasing what they have learned during their session. They also tour Media Productions' workspace, see games in production and ask designers questions. The sessions build 21st century skills, such as media literacy, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.
