“What’s in a Game?”

We all love to play board and card games, but there’s quite a bit involved in creating one!  In this interactive, intensive workshop, students will learn the fundamentals of game design, with an eye toward mathematical strategy gaming.  We will study the six parts of a game, winning and non-losing strategies, and the game design process.  Participants will play, modify, create, and test in a collaborative, guided setting.  Take your love of tabletop games to the next level!  This session is appropriate for students in grades 6 – 9.
Note: Please register each camper separately.

“Game like a Mathematician”

Games are not only fun to play, but fun to solve!  Mathematicians have invented many games that present challenging math problems, some of which are still unsolved.  Join us to learn, play, and analyze intriguing mathematical strategy games.  These sessions are appropriate for students in grades 3 – 5 and 4 – 6, respectively.
