The Graduation Game (TGG) is an academic exploration game designed in ARIS. This game has been utilized for two years as an orientation tool for psychology undergraduate students. This game allows students to explore the courses they will take during the first year of their bachelor’s degree situated on the Utah State University Campus.

To prepare youth to be computationally literate in a digital world economy, two key approaches have emerged aiming to make text-based programming more widely applicable, accessible, and age-appropriate.
