Rochester, NY – Second Avenue Learning has received a Bronze Award from the International Serious Play Competition for its Martha Madison physical science game suite. The competition recognizes outstanding game titles that deliver high quality engagement and learning opportunities for students, and is held in conjunction with the annual Serious Play Conference at Carnegie Mellon University.

The Martha Madison games support middle school science instruction through videogame style problem-based learning. Each game introduces key science content through collaborative play, while also offering students the opportunity to build their own game levels using science and engineering principles. The games have been shown to be particularly effective with girls as well as students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds.
