"Working with the Maine Game Club has been a pleasure. It is exciting to see students so motivated and excited to utilize their education and their skills. The Club has been working hard at developing a new video game that has an educational component about space and planets. The students have been creative, thoughtful and responsive. Their end product will be an excellent fit with our demographic at the Discovery Museum. They have created a fun, interactive game that has learning at its core. We are thrilled to partner with the Maine Game Club and UTC. It is an outstanding program."
