ACEE launched its brand new program called "Get Your Game On!" on Saturday February 26th. Here is what some of the attendees had to say about it.
The games were so well structured! Very easy to understand the rules and the creators did a great job of focusing on Econ and Personal Finance as well as keeping the spirit of baseball, football, and cornhole intact. Can't wait to try these out with my students!

Great job on blending a fun and engaging activity with physical participation. This will be a hit for teachers and students alike.
