The creators of Sesame Street pioneered a new approach to early childhood education 45 years ago when they set out to use the power of television to help prepare young children for school. Today, Sesame Street continues to evolve with the media landscape to reach children with educational content in new ways. Join the creative team from the Sesame Street Innovation Lab as they show how they utilize multiple platforms and new technologies to create Sesame Street video games, websites, and mobile applications enjoyed by families around the world. Plus, get a peek at a brand new interactive game created by the Sesame Content Innovation Lab and Gigantic Mechanic. (For Adults.)

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition“Somebody Come and Play”: 45 Years of Sesame Street Helping Kids Grow Smarter, Stronger, and Kinder.
