The Joan Ganz Cooney Center is proud to partner with the Education Software Association (ESA) Foundation on a number of initiatives, including our very own National STEM Video Game Challenge. We are especially excited about the ESA Foundation for the Education Challenge Grant, which launched this winter. The program recognizes and rewards educators who “incorporate creativity and technology in their lessons” and reflect the ways that games can make to a positive contribution to children’s learning.
The ESA Foundation’s Education Challenge Grant invites educators to submit lesson plans, submissions and other proposals to incorporate existing computer and video games into the classroom. The Challenge Grant will award three cash prizes of up to $40,000 to the most innovative entries to be used toward implementing the proposed lesson plan.
The deadline for submissions is March 11. Learn more about the Challenge Grant and download an application on the ESA Foundation’s website.
