Field Day Lab | Wisconsin Institute for Discovery
"We are a truly interdisciplinary team of educational researchers, software engineers, artists, and storytellers, exploring the intersection of contemporary learning science and media design, specializing in mobile media, video games, and simulation. Central to our educational philosophy is the process of learning through making. Why give people games when they can create games? We believe in keeping our tools free and open source, inspiring collaborative grassroots user communities and a robust network of educators and students iterating on one another’s designs. Seeking to do what’s never been done before, we constantly innovate, play, take risks, and mess-make."

Boulder Digital Works at CU
"Our 60 Weeks Program is an integrated projects-driven graduate program in media and business design.<br />
In today's age, learning digital isn't recommended, it's imperative. And while understanding this ever-evolving medium won't happen overnight, you can be sure that over the course of 60 weeks, you'll learn to think globally, design innovatively, and look past perceived barriers.<br />
No matter where you are on your career path, BDW will take your digital skills to a new level. Whether your background is in business, technology, or creative, you'll learn to move comfortably between all three fields. When your 60 weeks are up, not only will you be able to think big, you'll have the skills and experience to be big.<br />
Because digital is always evolving, no day at BDW is ever the same. While our program is fluid, we remain focused on pushing students to explore, refine, and apply the possibilities in digital spaces."

Local Projects
"Local Projects is a media design firm for museums and public spaces. We create a diverse range of installations from large environmental interactives, websites, and mobile applications, to simple experiences composed of thumbtacks, vellum, or conversation.<br />
While innovation drives much of today’s design, we’re interested in creating projects that can endure. For us at Local Projects, interaction design is more than just controlling technology. We create media that is integrated into architecture, and that connects people with the world and each other. We look to create experiences that inspire awe and wonder.<br />
<br />
Many of our projects are about co-creation: gathering visitor stories, or collecting opinions, or memories. We’ve learned that the most incredible material emerges when you create a platform for visitors to communicate."
