The Learning Games Lab is partnering with the University of Connecticut (UConn) Extension on a 4-Year, USDA-NIFA–funded project to develop biotechnology video games for youth 4-H cohorts. The science-based games will provide information about biotechnology in agriculture such as genetic engineering. NMSU is thrilled to once again be collaborating with UConn on a gaming project. NMSU will be working directly with the 4-H youth cohorts to design out the games. The games will then be fully produced within the Learning Games Lab studio.
