It’s no secret that the United States is behind on math and science. But contrary to popular belief, it’s not actually because we’re lazy. Part of the reason is because most of the country can’t afford the money for the books and equipment necessary to learn everything we need to. The other part is because girls’ interest in science dwindles as they age: According to DoSomething.org, “66% of fourth grade girls and 68% of fourth grade boys report they like science and math. By eighth grade, girls are half as interested in these subjects as boys are and this attrition continues through high school and college.”
The solution? Science Sleuth.
Science Sleuth is a multiplayer, choose your own adventure game developed by DoSomething.org and 3M scientists. All you have to do is text “CLUE” to 38383, invite three friends to join, and you’re in!
The even better news is that if you play by November 30th, you’ll unlock funding for Minnesota and St. Louis, Missouri schools AND be entered to win a $10,000 scholarship. Could it get any better than this?
