Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach 6th grade ESL immigrant students in Brooklyn, New York. Most of my kids live below poverty level, and have little access to games and entertainment. In my classroom, the games we have are Bingo games from the 1970s that are falling apart. Brain Quest is a unique board game that challenges students to answer trivia questions from all different subject areas. The motto of the game is "It's OK to be smart!" This would be perfect for my students. It is so completely different from everything that we have access to in our classroom. They would benefit so much from an educational game like Brain Quest. Four Brain Quest games would ensure that each group of students can play at the same time. Please help my students learn and have fun at the same time with Brain Quest!
