Game design with teens, for teens

Game Design Studio

In Game Design Studio, teens use and expand on their social and emotional skills while they play, analyze, and design games. Game Design Studio:

  • Offers teens opportunities to voice their experiences and express themselves through the art of game design
  • Introduces teens to game design as an art and career
  • Builds teens’ social-emotional and STEM skills
  • Informs iThrive Games’ understanding of teens’ lived experience to inform our game design process
 

Here’s what teens say about their experiences at Game Design Studio

 
“Game Design has definitely given me confidence in what I think I can do, but it also helped me think about how I could build off of other people’s ideas in order to reach one progressive goal.” – Youth, 13, Boys & Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster
 
“Game Design helped me to understand myself more and how I felt, and this program also helped me understand how I thought my friends would feel and if we could work together to find a solution to the games.” – Youth, 14, Boys & Girls Club of Fitchburg and Leominster
