Be a part of an exclusive group of kids, learning critical life skills
The program involves design exercises and engaging discussions around ideas of empathy, kindness, responsibility, ethics, integrity, and thoughtful decision making. The sessions are led by learning designers with years of experience engaging kids in learning activities.
Learn how video games are made - beyond just coding
Your kids get to work with world-class game designers to co-design their own games within Fairside Stories - getting a sneak peek into how their favorite games are made. They'll get exposure to various aspects of game development - including design, programming, art, production and music. Who knows? This may spark their desire to pick up game design as a career!
Make new friends
At Squad workshops, your kids will get to meet and engage with other thoughtful, enthusiastic and all-round cool kids just like themselves. The Fairside Squad is a welcoming and inclusive space - everyone is as awesome as you are.
The world’s first video game based program for developing life skills
The Fairside Squad is a wholly unique participatory learning program, where kids (ages 9-14) develop a range of social-emotional and life skills like empathy, integrity, responsibility and value-based decision making, by co-designing, playing and discussing our game, Fairside Stories. Unlike information-driven education, Fairside Stories offers an engaging and unforgettable learning experience for kids. This leads to better, tangible learning outcomes and increased motivation to continue learning.
