In Person - Newell-Simon Hall 1109

Student teams of 4-5 have spent the last half of the semester hard at work with the goal of creating excellent educational games for their final projects in 05-418/818 Design of Educational Games. Overcoming the challenges of hybrid collaboration and playtesting, they have created 9 great games that they are excited to show off.  We are returning to an in-person showcase this year so our teams can show off the work they’ve done to the broader HCII and CMU communities.  During the showcase members of each team will be standing by to give walkthroughs and hands-on demos of their completed games.
