Each virtual gaming session will read like a story, with players taking an active part in building the narrative through their decisions, ideas, and other thoughts. 

Mentoring the program will be Jared Fishman, a history teacher and game-based learning specialist from the Hackley School in Tarrytown where he teaches game-based learning courses throughout the year. He is also the co-founder and director of HMGS Next Gen, Inc, a non-profit organization devoted to fostering and growing game clubs and game-based learning.
