GameStar Mechanic is designed for 7- to 14-year-olds but is open to everyone. In fact, we strongly encourage intergenerational gameplay: parents playing with kids, older siblings playing with younger siblings, even getting the grandparents involved!
Although playing and making games tends to appeal to young boys more than young girls, we have been careful to design the characters, narrative and gameplay to appeal to both boys and girls.
"Digital games offer a promising and untapped opportunity to leverage children's enthusiasm and help transform learning in America"
