Update #1

Update #1 - Hit Seekers

Comment

Thanks to everyone who has donated so far and encouraged us along. 
Our last session of the first playtest of Hit Seekers is tomorrow, Monday. We are going to present the prizes (gift cards) to the top companies to the kids, which we call "bling". 

If you donate $25 or more, you can see the complete accounting spreadsheet of all the companies.

We will be videotaping some of the students tomorrow to get their reaction to the game and their thoughts on math in general. Hopefully it has improved! This video will be posted, ideally, by Monday night.

There is another school that is interested in bringing games into their classrooms, and they are asking about Hit Seekers. We can really use your help to fine tune our game to match this new grade level's math standards as well as broaden the scope of the game and lengthen the duration: Twitter feeds for artists and producers, Facebook accounts, a separate website, specialty art for the characters, etc. 

Thanks again, and stay tuned for more new from Hit Seekers!

PHOTO: Fu De Yo is one of the bands the students could sign to record. Their name comes from the movie Blade Runner, and it means "Two is enough" in the pidgin language of Los Angeles 2019.  But with a BIG donation of $1,000, you can name your own band!
