Cashtivity sparks creativity & computational thinking through real world Challenges for STEM in a delightful ready-to-go project driven format. Designed to be run over 1-2 class lessons, students apply the principles of a specific STEM concept to data generated from work & life situations they can relate to, and draw the connection between classroom learning and the real world.

Why participate?

Have the award winning team at Cashtivity develop your lesson plan into an inspiring interactive Challenge that your class can engage with via our innovative digital learning platform. Everyone who submits a completed Challenge will win a Cashtivity T-shirt. The top 5 entries will also win a $50 Amazon gift card. Authors of all published challenges will also be invited to join our Master Educators Program and are eligible to earn royalties for their Challenges.

To promote the spirit of collaboration and sharing amongst teachers who love to create; all submissions, including one of Cashtivity's existing award winning challenges, will be available to participants at the end of the competition via a shared folder.

We are excited to partner with the team at Cashtivity to drive excellence in STEM outcomes via their innovative real world challenges.
