The Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop and E-Line Media announced the sponsors and partners for the 2012 National STEM Video Game Challenge.
The Cooney Center and E-Line Media will announce the prize categories, jury and rules of the 2012 National STEM Video Game Challenge when the competition launches this November. The 2012 Challenge will feature four entry categories: Middle School, High School, Collegiate and Educator.
Inspired by the “Educate to Innovate Campaign,” President Obama’s initiative to promote a renewed focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education, the National STEM Video Game Challenge is a multi-year competition to motivate interest in STEM learning among America’s youth by tapping into students’ natural passion for playing and making video games.
