Today at the Cooney Center, we are proud and excited to announce that the 2012 National STEM Video Game Challenge is officially open for entries. This nationwide competition invites game makers of every age to show their passion for both playing and making video games, while aiming to motivate children’s interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
With four different categories and multiple streams to submit to, there’s something for almost everyone. The Middle School and High School categories aim to motivate and engage students in STEM learning by challenging them to design and create their very own original video games. The Collegiate and Educator categories challenge emerging game developers to show us their skills by designing video games for children in pre-K – grade 12 that teach STEM curricula in a new and innovative way.
With almost 200K in cash and prizes up for grabs, why wouldn’t you enter? For more information and to register, go to www.STEMchallenge.org.
