Work with Field Day

Sharing research outside the university is crucial. It takes a lot of effort but it still doesn’t reach enough people. We bring your research to huge audiences with games, virtual reality experiences and citizen science apps.

Learn how we work

We are a Research Lab

Field Day is an education media research lab within the Wisconsin Center for Education Research at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. Our work lies at the intersection of interactive media and theories of situated and sociocultural learning. In that pursuit, we create new technologies such as augmented and virtual reality, video games, coding platforms and mobile apps that act as research platforms to understand how people learn.

What can we build together?

Learning Games
Digital Field Guides
VR & AR experiences
Citizen Science Apps
Museum apps
Teacher Fellowships

What Does a Game Cost?

Our games vary widely in cost. They can take anywhere from a few months to several years to produce. Many labs don’t have this kind of funding, but we have a plan. We partner with you to write the grants that will pay for the project. We start by looking for seed funds available through your organization to develop a game concept. Next we use this concept, complete with sample art and clearly articulated goals, to write public engagement and outreach grants or to write the Broader Impacts or Public Outreach section of your research grant.

What we Make

We make learning games, virtual reality experiences and citizen science apps.
All our games, apps and courses are free and available online.

Work with Us

We work with scientists, researchers, teachers, artists, story tellers, and all-around rad people to make things together to impact our communities.
