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.

Rochester is also home to around 50 small and midsized optics companies, which produce everything from optic technologies for motor vehicle sensor systems to the lenses of the Hubble telescope. The study of light, and all its many applications, has been a part of Rochester’s history for over 150 years.
