ED GAMES EXPO 2016

Showcasing Games for Learning Developed through SBIR 

Game-based learning is gaining popularity as more and more young people and adults play and learn from games in and out of the classroom. Well-designed games can motivate learners to actively engage in challenging tasks, master content, and sharpen critical thinking and problem solving skills. In recent years, SBIR has provided awards to many small businesses to develop games for learning in the fields of education, health, and the military.

The 2016 Ed Games Expo will showcase 30 small businesses who developed games for learning with the support of SBIR programs at: the U.S. Department of Education (IES), the Nation Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Agriculture, and DARPA.

At the Expo, attendees meet the developers while playing games that cover a range of topics!
