Dear Potential Game Lab Consultant:
We are offering summer Think Tank sessions where you may have the opportunity to play and
evaluate computer and video games as part of a research study. Selected consultants will play and
participate in game design activities and develop their writing, interpersonal and computer skills.
They will work with game developers to explore careers in game development, and investigate ways
games can be used in education and to increase physical activity.

We’re offering four different sessions for students entering middle school (grades 6-8). Only
youth entering grades 6-8 in the fall 2012 are eligible to apply. Application does not guarantee
admission, but forms should be turned in as soon as possible. Selected consultants will be
notified as soon as possible. Selection is based in part on our research needs and on the
potential of the applicants to contribute to our research.

With your parents, please complete the attached Learning Games Think Tank Application
Form and the attached Research Consent Form.

Return application and consent for to my office (Gerald Thomas Hall 286), by mail, or email
