SSEC Intern Reuben Brenner-Adams

Reuben Brenner-Adams, a Digital Media Intern at the Smithsonian Science Education Center (SSEC) this summer, will be entering his fifth and final year in the Game Design & Development BS/MS program at the Rochester Institute of Technology this fall.



During his internship Reuben created both analog and digital games that will be included in the SSEC’s K-8 science curricula. Specifically, he gained experience by developing a computer game to teach 5th graders about global water trade and a board game to help 3rd graders understand what happens when animals’ habitats undergo change. Reuben also gained experience by working with SSEC curriculum developers to design guides and lessons that go along with the games.


Thanks for being at the Smithsonian Reuben!
