AMD Changing the Game

AMD Changing the Game, an initiative of the AMD Foundation, is AMD’s global signature education program designed to take gaming beyond entertainment, and inspire youth to learn. The program teaches kids how to create their own video games on subjects such as energy and the environment and other important social issues. By creating games, students learn science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills as well as problem solving, critical thinking, language skills and teamwork. They are so engaged in the process they don’t realize how much they are learning.
