Team

Who we are

Our research team is uniquely situated, drawing upon the expertise of and dedication from individuals working and studying at North Carolina (NC) State University and Penn State University.

 

We utilize a full-team and sub-team approach. Working as a full team, we meet regularly every two weeks. Our members work in sub-teams, game design and/or science literacy, and meet weekly. 

Our project team also holds regular retreats, which span several days. These retreats are a beneficial space, whether in-person or virtual, for work flow and brainstorming project challenges.
