Kids today think that studying for anything is really boring… and they’re right! Almost two thirds of students in the U.S. don’t even study six hours per week as seniors in high school. However, the average child from 8 to 18 years old spends more than 7.5 hours a day interacting with digital media such as video games and apps. The studying solution is evident, make studying fun! Turn studying into video games! PSG (Programmable Study Games) is a software that allows teachers to submit study questions that will automatically programmed into a variety of video games. Students can access these games on their phones, tablets, computers, and even their video game consoles!

On this program teachers will be able to submit their study guide. The program is very similar to Google Forms. Once created, teachers can choose the game they would like their students to play.

The overall goal of our project was to design a solution to a real world problem. We hope that the outcome will result in our product being manufactured and distributed for consumer use. Throughout this process we have learned a great deal about designed thinking, marketing, teamwork, and finances. This real world STEAM Challenge has provided us with an authentic learning experience. It required us to apply the knowledge we have aqcuired in the regular education classes of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. We have designed prototypes and are looking for investors or partners to help us take our prototypes and turn them into consumer products.
