The 2012 STEM Video Game Challenge has had its deadline extended to March 23. First launched in 2010
as part of President Barack Obama's STEM initiative, the challenge is designed to promote education in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The challenge tasks middle schoolers, high schoolers, college students and educators with the creation of a video game (or video game design documents), a project that requires skills in all STEM disciplines.
Prizes up for grabs include laptops for students, cash donations for schools and project funding for teams at the collegiate and educational level. Those interested in signing up for the challenge can find more info at StemChallenge.org
