About Middle Galaxy
Developed as part of the Texas OnCourse educational initiative, Middle Galaxy is the first game of it’s kind. A collaboration between University of Texas, Austin, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Institute for Applied Neuroscience, Middle Galaxy lets students explore a wide range of career possibilities, and the underlying knowledge and skills required for those professions, through play-based learning.
Designed as a classroom tool to help Texas middle school students select a focused area of study in high school (known as an endorsement), Middle Galaxy is an excellent educational tool to use in any classroom, or for independent play.
