Game design as a pathway to STEM careers

An ITEST project called Game Design Through Mentoring and Collaboration, a partnership between McKinley Tech and George Mason University (GMU) in Fairfax, Virginia, is showing students that STEM careers are not limited to white-coat-wearing lab scientists.  This project makes STEM relevant by having participants learn and then teach each other game design, 3-D modeling, and animation.
