Supporting President Obama’s call for a renewed focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, the Joan Ganz Cooney Center and partners, the Entertainment Software Association (ESA), the Information Technology Industry Foundation (ITIF), the MacArthur Foundation, Games for Change, and E-Line Media are developing a variety of initiatives that harness the engagement and educational potential of video games to advance children’s learning. The Early Childhood STEM Game Challenge is co-funded by the Cooney Center and the ESA, building out the Center’s recently announced prize program, the Cooney Center Prizes for Innovation.
