    The last November 15th A New Prize Challenge for Virtual and Augmented Reality Learning Tools was launched.

    The U.S. Department of Education calls for concepts for immersive simulations that transfer academic, technical, and employability skills. Successful simulations will pair the engagement of commercial games with rigorous educational content to prepare students for the 21st century workforce.

    Those interested in entering the Challenge should submit their simulation concept proposals by January 17, 2017. Following the close of the submission period, a multidisciplinary panel of judges will evaluate the entries and select up to five finalists to advance to the Virtual Accelerator phase. Each finalist will be awarded $50,000 and gain access to expert mentorship as they refine their concept and build a simulation prototype.

    From my experience, participation from all those who might not agreed with any of his ways can change everything, you people are doing a lot of good stuff, maybe not in your best moment through the history but at least in one better than ours.

    Back in topic: are our friends doing something to send it to this contest???
