K-12 Game-a-thon

With each installment of Inside Our MIND, we'll be taking a look at issues and challenges facing education that we are working to address through research, technology and strategic initiatives.

In our latest episode, host Brian LeTendre is joined by MIND's Director of Programs and Events Mike Limon to talk about the K-12 Game-a-thon, a national event that challenges students to think critically and creatively to design a game that solves a mathematical problem. Their discussion beings with a bit of history about MIND's community outreach events over the past several years, and how they helped inform what became the K-12 Game-a-thon.
