Each semester, Parsons gathers students and faculty projects from the Design and Technology program and invites youth to come play test them at an event called PlayTech. Young people test the games and give their feedback so their students can improve their designs. Projects include video games, board and card games, toys and other interactive experiences. The second half of the day student practiced presenting their learning portfolios.
A group of students came in early to introduce and promote their senior Capstone Residency to the Juniors and Sophomores. They also used this time as an opportunity to share information about the Capstone class itself, a class all scholars attend in their senior year.
