Educational Gaming Journey to the Italian Renaissance
Founded out of the LIVE Lab at Texas A&M University, Triseum has developed an art history game, ARTé: Mecenas, in which students assume the role of a Medici and balance relationships with powerful city–states, merchant factions, and the Catholic Church or risk excommunication, exile, and bankruptcy. The game assesses the likelihood that students can recognize and match works of art but also understand the role of art given societal norms and the overall relevance to the people and policies of the period.
K–12 students are invited to take part in the 2018 Doodle 4 Googlecontest and create an uplifting doodle that tells the world “What inspires me.” From crayons to clay, graphics, or even food, young artists can utilize any materials to bring their creations to life.
Hosted by The School of The New York Times, the NYC Summer Academy gives intellectually curious high school students the opportunity to live and learn in New York City while studying topics in journalism, media, technology, arts, culture, sports, fashion, business, science, and more.
The Kids Philosophy Slam is designed to make philosophy accessible and engaging for children of all ages and abilities, to encourage a philosophical dialogue between children and adults, and to promote a greater awareness of philosophy and education in everyday life.
