We recently blogged about our sponsorship of the 2012 National STEM Video Game Challenge, a multi-year competition that aims to motivate interest in STEM learning among America’s youth. By tapping into kids’ existing passion for video games and technology, the Challenge aims to help build essential math and science skills while inspiring them to be the next generation of America’s innovators.
We’re teaming up with a few of our National STEM Video Game Challenge partners to host a TweetChat to discuss youth game design and game-based learning. Details are below:
