Some Louisiana school children are experiencing the art of video game design first-hand, thanks to a state-funded program.
2theAdvocate reports that middle- and high-school students in the Zachary and Lafayette School Districts are creating educational games that, hopefully, are also fun to play. One of the teams’ projects is focused on developing sources of clean energy. Along the way, students have received advice and feedback from game industry professionals.
The program is funded by the Louisiana Department of Economic Development’s Digital Workforce Initiative.
