About URF Academy Online
In 2016, a group of Rioters launched URF Academy, an interactive game design workshop for high school students at our headquarters in Los Angeles. URF Academy’s goals were to teach local students about fundamental concepts in game design and showcase the breadth of careers in the gaming industry.
After hosting more than 500 students over the course of two years, we expanded URF to several regional offices, including St. Louis, Dublin, Sydney, São Paulo, and Mexico City. Simultaneously, we began co-developing a free, online curriculum with two veteran computer science and game design educators to empower teachers to provide high quality game design instruction to high school students around the world.
