K-12 Game-a-thon
Challenge Your Students To Create Their Own Math Game!

The national K-12 Game-a-thon challenges students to think critically and creatively to design a game that solves a mathematical problem.  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.  Students will launch a lifelong love of math as they apply the math they are learning to game-play!
