S.E.E.D. is a summer STEM learning program at The University of Chicago, that will unfold both online and on The University of Chicago campus from July 7-August 8, 2014.
S.E.E.D. takes the form of an extended game with a unifying narrative, played over three weeks using a variety of activities to solve Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and arts-related challenges. This program will be followed by a two-week game design workshop, in which youth will use STEM skills honed over the previous three weeks to create their own games.
S.E.E.D. is part of the Chicago City of Learning, a groundbreaking year-round initiative that gives young people the opportunity to take new paths of discovery, explore the city's rich resources, and find out what they can learn, make, do, and ultimately become. S.E.E.D. is made possible by the support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Neubauer Family Collegium for Culture and Society, Aramark Higher Education, and the University of Chicago Humanities Division and Humanities Visiting Committee.
