High School Students from Games for Change @ Thomas A. Edison CTE High School
About this Project:
Our project addresses the problems of climate change and how we are part of the problem, but we can also be part of the solution. When thinking about our ideas, we wanted to address a problem that was currently harming us, not only one specific group of people, but all of us living on earth.
Our project is a quiz that you take after reading our presentation. The quiz will have questions regarding climate change. We also have included a rollover project page to describe the way we are all contributing to ruining the earth and how we can also be part of the solution.
I blend CS Education and Youth Development through the training and support of NYC DOE educators in learning and implementing CS education in their Middle Schools and High Schools.

He is passionate about providing youth with opportunities to create a brighter future for themselves. Outside of work, you can find Joshen binge-listening to podcasts or chasing after his fluff-ball pet chinchilla!

I really appreciated you including the quiz on the site; being able to play a game while learning always makes the experience better and the knowledge stick.
I design content and programs that teach young people and educators about computer science, UX/UI design, and all kinds of creative technology. I also helped organize this event - Emoti-con!
Outside of my work at Mouse, I am also an artist, illustrator and creative technologist. I love making things with art tools and technology. I got a degree in Creative Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
Perri has always maintained an interest in experiential learning and credits her high school experience at a progressive boarding school for this. She believes deeply in empowering youth and educators and is excited to be working with the Mouse team toward these goals.

Your website and slides are visually appealing. Using a game for education was a great move to make and help keep users engaged. I wonder if you might make the game more difficult and provide more explanation of the concepts in a different part of the app. The illustration is wonderful!

Wow - great work going above and beyond here with a multi-media approach through the quiz, games, and informational sites. The quiz was easy to follow, engaging, educational, utilized graphics and feedback well, and helps engage the user upfront for them to "test" their knowledge and understanding in this area. Then going to the games and website page allows them to really dive deeper, going from "gamification" of the topic to true education and knowledge sharing. Given the wealth of information provided here it would be great to know the source of information / could link to "Learn More" sections.
I also enjoyed the "About" project section where you highlighted true team work - the ability to bring together a group of people with diverse skill sets to collectively create something greater than any individual could have done. Keep up the good work in challenging yourselves to go "above and beyond" on your projects, it's a great life skill.
