Facilitated by Anna Roberts and Courtney Francis.

Arctic Saga
Christian de Luna, Chris Vicari, Tom Toynton, Joey Lee
Arctic Saga is an educational board game designed to simulate marine spatial planning, a technique used to resolve stakeholder spatial interests in disputed regions. Players negotiate stakeholder economic interests while working together to maintain the Arctic environment.

Dream Flight Adventures — Mission Ops
Gary Gardiner, Sarah Gardiner
Mission Ops is a sister product that accompanies Dream Flight Adventures simulators. Whereas the standard simulators are heavily themed immersive environments, Mission Ops is less themed and more suitable for a variety of typical learning environments (classrooms, after school programs, labs, etc.). Dream Flight simulators and Mission Ops work hand-in-hand—the former sending crews of students on epic missions throughout time and space, and the latter enlisting students to work as the "mission control" behind the scenes of these missions. Together, they provide a full learning experience.
