⦁ Will Wright – Wright is a well-known video game designer, and creator of games such as The Sims, SimCity, and Spore. He says that children “can become interested in pretty complex theories, like Pythagorean theory, say, by playing with blocks. It’s all about learning on your own terms, rather than having a teacher explain stuff to you. And when kids discover these things on their own, what they learn sticks with them so much more.”
