Power Up!

Power Up is a flexible open software/hardware educational boardgame designed to help teach elementary and middle school students a variety of topics. The core concept of Power Up is recognizing groups, such as what will add up to produce a desired value, which words fall under a certain part of speech or which group an individual is associated with. This version is designed to help students practice adding and subtracting fractions. Through crowd-sourcing, we hope to develop a user-base with a variety of offshoots that can teach a variety of subjects.
