Advancing STEM Creation Through Game Creation
This interdisciplinary workshop will focus on the potential of, and opportunities for, game development, game design, and game creation more broadly as a means of engaging young learners in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects. This workshop will bring together an interdisciplinary collective of academics and industry representatives to discuss potential avenues for innovation in games and STEM learning. In addition to discussing opportunities and technologies that may help in creating positive perceptions and increase persistence in learning STEM subjects, we aim to discuss how games can provide opportunities for STEM education as both playful environments and as simulation environments. With the goal of building on existing work, a key goal for the workshop is to highlight new directions and chart new courses in STEM learning and games.
