MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT…PATH OF PLAY IS COMING BACK.
For the last few weeks, we have worked feverishly to revive this project in hopes of getting something back from what 2020 took away. We were not all in the same boat, and we all experienced a different storm.
Today, we announce a BIG win for students. We will be partnering with a high school to FINALLY see a vision come to fruition. Forget everything you know Path of Play because things are changing in a BIG way.
This program will include two board gaming libraries, a Nintendo Switch gaming station, and…A PINBALL MACHINE to be placed in an Alternative Learning classroom.
All of this has been approved by the school, and we will be making a more official announcement with them soon.
We have many details to share but know this for now…through our mandate called THE PLAYROOM EXPERIMENT, the Path of Play organization can now build a legacy.
The days of “exploring as scientists” are over. We will build many inclusive spaces where EVERYONE plays with EVERYONE.
