Several Laramie High School students (Laramie, Wyoming) combined a love of gaming with a chance to help others, dedicating countless hours of their time to designing games for peers with special needs using the skills they learned in the Game Design class which uses STEM Fuse's GAME:IT curriculum.

Billie Vanlandingham, who teaches Game Design at LHS, said the project began as a collaboration with Thomas Newman, a school speech therapist who works with students with cognitive disabilities.
 
Students interested in designing a game for a peer in special education learned about the other student’s needs and interests and programmed their games accordingly.
