Unity creates educational resources, makes engine free to teachers

Unity 5 can head to high schools complete with a curricular framework for teaching the engine, and standards aimed at integrating with school curricula.

Unity has a new educator-focused program to get its engine into secondary schools, and it's recognized by the White House for it.

The program includes no-charge Unity 5 software licenses for secondary (high school) educators, a 40-page Professional Skill Standard that meshes with currently taught STEM curricula, and a 200+ page Curricular Framework "that covers the entire professional pipeline from design and development, through deployment."

A new post on the White House site discussing a $240 million investment in STEM education from private-sector companies calls out Unity specifically for this program -- which it actually announced earlier this month, during GDC.

"While students are fascinated and excited with art, design and technology; educators will appreciate Unity as a vehicle for delivering important academic material like physics, math and programming logic in an engaging, multi-disciplinary, team-based, project learning environment," writes Unity's Michael Edmonds.
