The benefits of play are well known: it’s how kids learn; it encourages creativity; it relieves stress; and more than ever, it’s a way we interact with others. Incorporating play into all we do has the potential to enhance workplaces and family time; curricula and innovation. In a world that too often relies on auto-pilot, the humanity of a laugh, an aha!, or connecting with a trusted friend is the secret sauce of success.
Sandbox Summit@MIT will explore the ROI of Play from multiple angles and diverse disciplines, aligning with research trends, industry developments and breakthrough strategies across a range of platforms. In true Sandbox style, it promises to be as playful as it is enlightening, piquing curiosity and creativity, and fostering new connections and collaborations in unexpected ways.
