The annual National STEM Video Game Challenge for both students and K-12 teachers is now open for entries.
Do you or your students have great ideas for video games that relate to STEM topics? Inspired by the Educate to Innovate Campaign, the National STEM Video Game Challenge is a competition whose goal is to motivate interest in STEM learning among America’s youth by tapping into students’ natural passion for playing and making video games. Middle and high school students (grades 5-12) can enter a written game design or a playable game on any STEM topic, while K-12 educators, undergraduates and graduate students can submit playable prototypes in a variety of entry categories.
The National STEM Video Game Challenge will accept entries from November 15, 2011 through March 12, 2012. Complete guidelines and details on how to enter are available at www.stemchallenge.org.
