Much enthusiasm but less data has often accompanied games for science learning. This session brings together several researchers who investigate the potential of games for science learning and invites audience members to consider the evidence, raise their own questions and concerns, and form their own conclusions regarding several current projects. This interactive symposium will combine a structured poster session with a discussion session led by Yasmin Kafai. In particular, the session explores three questions. Does the data support the claims that the games can effectively support valuable science learning? What types of skills, concepts, and processes do the games and virtual worlds most effectively teach? What other data could and should be collected to support more definitive claims?
