This week those same teachers tested out what they learned on real kids.</p><p>Max O’Malley was one of 35 middle school kids at a camp at Carnegie Mellon University. One of their tasks was to create a new game using ping pong balls and plastic cups. Max and his group created a game based on the concept of air hockey.</p> Fri, 19 Jul 2013 11:09:26 +0000 Deanna Garcia 13366 at http://wesa.fm At This Camp, Playing Is More Than Just A Game
