Disney Learning Challenge

Category: Siggraph
Final judging of the Disney Learning Challenge takes place today outside Room 408 AB. The Challenge is an open competition sponsored by Disney Research with the goal of finding new and creative ways to use technology to make learning fun for children. Based on the principle that fun and learning should not be contradictory, teams were asked to develop an engaging, computer-based learning application that will delight, inspire, and reveal key learning concepts for children ages 7 through 11. Visit CGW.com for a list of the finalists.
