Teaching through games & play

Gigantic Mechanic believes strongly in games’ power to educate, and works to help clients who share that belief. We have developed a close relationship with Institute of Play, assisting them in developing web and paper games, creating design challenges for teenagers and compiling game-related resources for parents and learning practitioners. Institute of Play has also worked with us to develop curriculum to scaffold our own games and assess the learning.

We have worked with many other learning institutions, from developing interactive prototypes for the New York Hall of Science to collaborating with the Museum of Modern Art‘s Education department. We love to think about how to foster learning through fun experiences and games.
