Join us as we celebrate the immense educational benefits of gaming, especially the under-appreciated value of board games. The vast majority of our students are experienced with video games. But for too many students today, they grow up unfamiliar with board games and the amazing rewards that come from board games.
Along with being fun, board games can be educational and can contribute to the development of valuable life skills.
