IMLS Promotes STEM Education Through Video Games

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), along with the Joan Ganz Cooney Center and E-Line Media, announced the winners of the fifth annual National STEM Video Game Challenge, which aims to get students interested in STEM fields through video games. The 24 winning middle and high school students were selected from nearly 3,000 entries for their video game design concepts. For example, Kimberly Do, a high school student from Florida, designed “Escape Velocity,” which teaches players the physics behind orbital trajectories and allows them to explore space as they work toward rescuing a lost shuttle crew. Each winner receives $1,000 in cash, a subscription to E-Line Media’s Gamestar Mechanic, and a Curiosity Box from Vsauce.

For more information, read the press release.
