The STEM Challenge has hosted more than 35 game design workshops across the country for youth and educators. The energy at these workshops was amazing—read more about a youth workshop that took place at the Science Museum of Virginia. And we are thrilled to be hosting a series of intergenerational game design workshops with our partners at the AARP Foundation and Mentor Up. Check out this blog post about a workshop that took place at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, and see some photos from another recent event at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.

The winners of the fourth National STEM Video Game Challenge will be announced at an event in Pittsburgh, PA on June 27. Stay tuned for more information!
