The first annual National STEM Video Game Challenge, Developer Prize, is underway.
At Social Innovation Lab we're dedicated to bringing developers and educators together to support high quality entries to this challenge. For this event we will hear an overview of the Cooney Center Prizes organizers and 2010 finalists. We'll have a quick facilitated mixer and then turn you loose to create the next winning STEM Challenge game.
Ann Thai, Assistant Director of the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop will speak about the prize. Jacob Klein and Andy Russell, 2010 finalists in the Cooney Center Prize Innovations in Mobile Learning Challenge and Ben Grossman-Kahn, education manager at Zeum will offer their expertise for gaming and learning at the target age for the challenge.
This nationwide competition challenges emerging and experienced game developers to design mobile games, including games for the mobile web, for young children (grades pre-K through 4) that teach key Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) concepts and foster an interest in STEM subject areas. With a total prize pool of $100,000 and three ways to win (Grand prize 50K, Collegiate prize 25K, and Impact Prize 25K), what do you have to lose?
