The 10th Annual Games for Change festival, a New York-based event which examines the "positive social impact of games," will be held June 17-19, organizers announced on the event's site today.

The three-day affair will feature panels on subjects like MinecraftEdu, an effort to bring Mojang's sandbox game to the classroom, and the STEM Video Game Challenge, a competition for utilizing video games to inspire science, technology, engineering and math education. Speakers for the event include Puzzle Clubhouse creator and Carnegie Mellon faculty member Jesse Schell and Loot Drop co-founder Brenda Romero, among others.

General Admission to the event costs $550, but discounts are available to non-profit and government employees, minors and students. Tickets will be on sale until June 7.
