Video game design program boosts interest in science careers

DESCRIPTION

Designed to increase student interest in STEM subjects in traditionally underserved communities, ITEST project Game Design through Mentoring and Collaboration (GDMC) provides an environment in which students learn the basics of professional-level 3D modeling and animation software as well as the logic of game design and programming. Students also have the opportunity to become paid mentors, helping newer students hone their skills. Live Science goes behind the scenes of this important project.
