AIE hosts many events throughout the year for our students, parents, and school counselors, but what is Interactive Experience Day? Some of the events we regularly host on Saturdays is typically one of the two: our Open House and Interactive Experience Day (I-Days).

What happens at an I-Day?

What Is Interactive Experience Day? - Academy of Interactive EntertainmentI-Days are significantly different than our Open House.

The lessons you’ll learn from these workshops are designed for learning the basics of what we teach in our programs. I-Days are an open invitation to explore what is possible with industry standard software and set in a collaborative studio classroom.

Think of I-Days as a free hands-on experience workshop. We start off the day with a Q&A session with an industry professional, much like our Lunchbox Wednesday Speaker events. Then, you will choose the workshop you’ll want to participate in.
