Cyberchase Season 9:

Math and the Environment Challenge 2014 

Have you ever wanted to create an awesome game that people all around the country could play? Well, now is your chance. We’re inviting Cyberchase fans of all ages to create real-world games based on the show. The winning game will be featured on the Cyberchase website!!!

This year on Cyberchase, the CyberSquad solves real environmental challenges using math. In the process, the team learns about a variety of environmental topics, including ecosystems, solar power, and waste reduction, and uses math tools, such as bar graphs and grids, to solve problems. Cyberchase For Real, features real-world games that tackle themes presented in the episodes. For example, “Trash Dash,” the game based on Trash Creep, involves teams competing in an obstacle course-style relay race to sort a pile of items into bins for recycling, reusing, composting and landfill.

This spring, we are premiering The Cyberchase Movie, which focuses on natural habitats. This first-ever one-hour Cyberchase special will be airing in time for Earth Day. In preparation for the launch of this movie, we want YOU to make a game focusing on an environmental theme presented in Cyberchase Season 9! This challenge will be posted on www.facebook.com/cyberchase. So, follow us on Facebook for details about this exciting opportunity. We hope you will take the challenge!!!
