Just wanted to say my two sections of GAME:IT are eating this stuff up and loving it! Once they have the assignment in hand it doesn't take long for them to make their own creative mods and become "Immersed" in their creation! Its been great implementing this in the classroom as well as conversing with you on details along the way!

I credit GAME:IT with turning some of my most unwilling science students into tech-savvy science dynamos. Students arrive to class every day eager to program, and the structure of the course allows them to move at their own pace. I had no programming experience before teaching the course, but the objectives have taken very little time to master. Teaching GAME:IT is a joy for me and all of
my students.

I just wanted to share my excitement. I started the new semester with the GAME:IT curriculum, and I am "WOWED". My students were engrossed and engaged in the video, the worksheet, and even my lecture part! Thanks for allowing us to participate and learn using your curriculum. I know it is only one class, but I LOVE IT. This is JUST EXACTLY what I needed for this group of students.
