Hidden Agenda Contest

Hidden Agenda recently announced a new contest built around the idea of "stealth education" within video games. Here's a snippet from the announcement:

"Undergrads and Grad students are challenged to build entertaining games that 'secretly' teach middle school subjects. The contest pushes students to create primarily entertaining games that also teach topics such as forces, statistics, or the solar system. Students have complete freedom in their game designs. They can work in teams of up to 8 people, build games on and for any platform, and use existing engines. Games will be judged in May, with 5 finalist teams flying to Austin to present in front of game legends such as Richard Garriott for their final shot at the $25,000 prize. While all submitted games must fulfill teaching requirements to be considered, final judging is based on 70% entertainment and 30% educational value."
