Mobile Quest is a week-long summer camp where fifth graders discover game design through the use of smartphones. Mobile Quest campers work with designers, programmers and mobile experts to play, analyze and create location-based games. During Mobile Quest, campers use a variety of design and media tools and work together to use GPS and other mobile technologies to turn the city into their game board. No experience is required just curiousity, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn.

Nice one! I like how they introduce them to the vocabulary via playing games initially – then step-up to designing. Great engagement strategies!
