Everyone loves a good “game night” from time to time, right? Taking it a step further, imagine game night with the actual creator of the game!
Join us on Dec. 9 at 6:00 PM as 1776, in partnership Entertainment Software Association, hosts the ED Games Expo. During the Expo, 45 developers will demo the latest version of their games and learning in ed areas such as science, coding, math, history, social, behavioral, mental health, and military training. Attendees will play the games, meet the developers, and ask questions during and after gameplay!
The event features a group of 30 developers who created games with funding from the Small Business Innovation Research programs at the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences, and from five other Federal agencies. Just a few of the SBIR games being demo’d will include Happy Atoms by Schell Games, Eco by Strange Loop Games, Reach for the Sun by Filament Games, Quit It by Muzzy Lane, Aegis by Tietronix, and Saga by Smart Information Flow Technologies (SIFT). See videos of all SBIR-supported learning games here.
The Expo will also showcase other well-known learning games and developers outside of SBIR, including Minecraft EDU, Ubisoft, PBS Kids Scratch JR, CodeSpark, ClassCraft, Her Interactive, and others!
The Expo is a free event, but make sure to RVSP as space is limited. We look forward to what is sure to be a fun, memorable, and even educational game night event!
