This year, National Geographic partnered with the National STEM Video Game Challenge to bring the spirit of exploration to video gaming. We're proud to present the winners of the 2016 Nat Geo Explore Prize.
The Engineering Exploration Challenge asks students to solve challenges that explorers and scientists often face when they are in the field. Along they way, they receive mentorship from National Geographic engineers and grantees. Students who submit their solutions to National Geographic when the Challenge is running have received a variety of incentives, including free movie tickets and publication of their solution in a National Geographic Kids book!
Level up from video game player to video game designer! The National STEM Video Game Challenge is a video game competition for middle and high school students who as individuals or in teams design and make original, playable games or written game designs about any subject.
