Enter the National STEM Video Game Challenge
Posted by: Lucia Giacomantonio
The National STEM Video Game Challenge, launched in 2010, aims to motivate interest in STEM learning among America’s youth by tapping into students’ natural passion for playing and making video games.
Organizers have set up a special Edmodo Community for educators to join and to help you get your students involved. Join the community and connect with the event’s organizers as well as other teachers who are mentoring students in the competition.

Middle and high school students across the country are challenged to create original video games, individually or as teams, and to submit their games for the opportunity to win important recognition for themselves and their communities. This is a great way to get students involved in STEM, in a non-traditional way. Visit stemchallenge.org to register.
The National STEM Video Game Challenge is presented by the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop and E-Line Media. The Challenge is sponsored by Microsoft’s Xbox 360, Entertainment Software Association and AMD Foundation, with community sponsorship from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Hive NYC Learning Network, and national outreach partnerships with Edmodo, Learning Games Network, BrainPOP and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
