As you may know, 7 Generation Games is part of the National Science Foundation I-Corps program! If you didn’t know, you can read this post “We’ll never sleep again NSF i-corps begins” where you’ll find more details.
We want you to be part of this 7-week journey where our team, AnnMaria De Mars, Maria Burns Ortiz and Juliana Taken Alive are flying around the country to talk with school administrators, after school program directors and educators with expertise in serving economically disadvantaged students.
Here’s some behind the scenes and thoughts by Maria and AnnMaria about the first week of I-Corps. We’ve edited out AnnMaria’s swearing and Maria’s falling asleep mid-sentence.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO LET US INTERVIEW THEM OR RECOMMENDED EDUCATIONAL EXPERTS TO INTERVIEW! OUR TEAM FINISHED THE FIRST WEEK IN NUMBER 1 WITH 20 IN-PERSON INTERVIEWS COMPLETED!
