Pixels, Programming, Play & Pedagogy (P4Games - p4games.org) is a project which explores the creation of interactive videogames as a holistic, project-based teaching method in high schools. The creation of videogames requires the integration of visual arts (pixels), computer programming (programming), and game design (play). P4Games has two primary activities: The first is to "teach the teachers" through the Teacher Game Institute (TGI); and the second is to teach videogame creation skills directly to high school students during residential summer camps. The project aims to increase student interest in art, design, math, and technology. P4Games enjoys generous support from the National Science Foundation and the University of Denver.
