TheK-12 Game-a-thon challenges students to design, build and share a game that features creative and unusual solutions to mathematical problems.
Teams of one or more students, along with a teacher or parent in a coordinator role, invented card games, board games, apps, and outdoor games that addressed one or more mathematical topics. Throughout the process, students developed critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration skills and more. The challenge is designed to help students engage in math outside of the traditional classroom environment, providing an avenue to promotecreative thinkingin mathematics.
Thank you to all of our participating students, mentors and schools!
This year we had 89 entries from 13 different states across the country.
Meet the Judges
MIND would like to thank our judges who volunteered their time to watch and evaluate the game designs that students submitted.
I'm judging @MIND_Research Institute's national K-12 Game-a-thon. Amazing to see what these kids are doing by combining math and games!
