Evolution of video games (5th-12th grades)

Evolution of video games (5th-12th grades)

Why do old video games seem more complicated than new ones?
What games were played here and elsewhere?
How have games changed and evolved?

An educational video games program combines a history lesson with playing legendary video games. We’ll discover something new and exciting about old video games and, of course, play!

We’ll get to try out a diverse range of games:

  • Games that today’s grandparents might have dreamed of;
  • Games that your mum and dad used to play, and games that your grandparents used to play.
  • games that are still familiar to young people in the 21st century.

NOTE: If a group of more than 15 people wishes to participate in the video games program, we recommend that you also opt for a treasure hunt. During the two hours, all students will have the opportunity to take part in both fast-paced and moving programs.

The video games education program is organized in partnership with the Video Games Museum LVLup!
