DOD To Explain How To Earn Government Contracts at Serious Play Conference

Game developers and instructional designers have the opportunity to apply for funding from the federal government to produce new technology the military can use for training. Serious Play Conference ONLINE speakers will discuss what the DOD needs and how to apply on June 23-25, 2020.

Serious Play sessions will talk about what the military needs from game developers, opportunities with the army’s synthetic training development and learn where to apply for funding from various military departments.

Game-based learning is used by the U.S. government to train and teach soldiers necessary skills.

“Games and simulations have evolved in their usage in military settings,” conference speaker re-tired Gen. Frank Kelley said. “Today the government looks to young tech start-ups, funding them to offer new ideas and uses of technology for military training.”
