I used GameStar Mechanic last year with my fourth graders and they absolutely loved it!  What a great way to develop problem solving skills and critical thinking.  Students learn the basics of video game design through a fun and exciting tutorial.  The service allows students to master the art of gaming, but can easily be applied to content that is being addressed in the classroom.  What better way to demonstrate the understanding of a significant event in history than to create a video game representing it!

Gamestar Mechanic has offer to sponsor Edcamp Hagerstown by providing 4 Premium Teacher licenses and one opportunity for a student Online Learning program registration.

We will be picking the lucky winners at the end of Edcamp Hagerstown, so make sure you are there until the end!
