The national K-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, can invent card games, board games, apps, outdoor games or anything else that addresses a mathematical topic. Students will launch a life-long love of math as they apply the math they are learning to game-play.
K-12 Game-a-thon is central to MIND Research Institute's MathMINDs Initiative, which is a movement to shift the cultural perception of math from being scary and frustrating to exciting and essential. MathMINDs engages the community and students in hands-on mathematical experiences outside of the classroom. Learn more about MathMINDs.
