Field Day Lab is an innovative group of educators, game designers, storytellers, and artists based at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. It functions as a creative studio developing apps, games, websites, and other products with a special focus on education and technology. Field Day develops relationships, primarily with academics, and helps provide  the tools they need to share their research with the public. 

 

At Field Day I get to indulge my inner gamer, storyteller, and tinkerer. I take on the roll of content developer, brand strategist, and copywriter on a team of artists, researchers, designers, and engineers. I've helped with innovative interdisciplinary grant programs, the Field Day Fellowship Program, National Science Foundation grants, science games for teachers, a game about CRISPR gene editing,  and that's just the beginning.
