BrainPOP and the 2012 STEM Video Game Challenge

Student Made Games

Last week, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced the launch of the new Digital Promise Initiative. Part of the initiative is the 2012 National STEM Video Game Challenge. BrainPOP is a proud outreach partner of this event and our site is a terrific starting place for you to prepare your students to participate.  Of course our science, technology, engineering and mathematics topic pages introduce many key concepts that are perfect entry points for developing game content. In addition, check out Game-up for examples of STEM based educational  games and begin thinking about turning content knowledge into games.  Finally, listen to our webinar and read our blog posts that can help you consider the best ways to bring game design into your classroom. We love providing these resources,  and hope that you love using them too!
