Follow The Source on Social Media!

This is an exciting week for Game Changer Chicago, part of the Center for Interdisciplinary Inquiry and Innovation in Sexual and Reproductive Health (Ci3), as we launch a new summer program with 150 high school youth, The Source!

The Source is a transmedia game to be played on The University of Chicago campus, combining game-based learning, STEM, civic engagement, urban issues and digital badging. The Source is driven by a narrative, told via webisodes, by 17-year-old "Adia" and her friends Ros and Micah. Meet Adia here.

Each week, teams of players will complete challenges relating to Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) while learning about major urban issues such as energy scarcity, reproductive health disparities, crime and bullying. Game Changer Chicago Design Lab will conduct a multidisciplinary study of youth as they play The Source.

The Source was created as part of the Chicago Summer of Learning by Ci3's Game Changer Design Lab. Program partners include: Museum of Science and Industry, Digital Youth Network, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hive Learning Network, Mozilla, Mayor Rahm Emanuel's office and One Chicago.
