At the IAT 312 students will demo their digital board games. Five student teams in Foundations of Game Design (IAT 312) were tasked to reflect on topics that they care deeply about that could help create a better world, and are worth designing a purposeful (online) boardgame about.

Students tackled diverse topics including internet oversharing, competing priorities, ecosystem balance, supply chains for international aid, and financial insecurity.
