Play Test at University of Wisconsin- Madison

Rebecca Eydt and Leilah Lyons joined the University of Wisconsin- Madison for a play test at the Games Learning and Society Center. Fifteen local middle school children from an after school program specializing in computer sciences visited in order to test out the newly finished table top game. The researchers observed three groups of children during their game play so that developmental changes could be made before the table was shipped to NYSCI.

The play test was a success and the game has since been shipped to NYSCI. Installation will begin this week and research will start. Stay tuned!
