About A Chat with GameStart
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our curriculum leverages your student's passion for video games to make learning STEAM skills relevant. We believe games inspire discovery, foster innovation, and reward playfulness. Our instructors teach design, programming, and animation skills while encouraging self-expression and collaboration.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Students must bring with them (no exceptions): -A good attitude -Excitement about games -Willingness to learn In seriousness: GameStart provides all necessary equipment.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Traditionally, school tells kids what to be interested in and why it's useful. At GameStart, we let kids tell us what's useful ('I want a magic wand in Minecraft! Can Mario be a girl?'), and we show them how to get there (coding and modeling, in this case!). We believe in this flipped script.
What do you love most about your job?
What do I love about my job teaching 1st-12th graders how to feel powerful and assert creative control over their treasured fantasy worlds, knowing that the whole time we're seeecretly preparing them for greater understanding of the real world? Every PART of that.
