Benefits

Poly Challenge is a community-based program that incentivizes students, teachers, and school systems to engage in computational thinking and creative problem solving.

From taking the Polyup environment to hundreds of classrooms, and from the direct praise of hundreds more teachers, principals, and superintendents using Polyup in their schools, we have witnessed the near-unanimous positive impact that Polyup’s freeform math playground has had on students, both in terms of mathematical mindset and actual curricular learning. Poly Challenge creates an environment where students can receive the same impact without teachers expending valuable class time to fit an extra activity; students can work on their own time, improving their math and computational thinking skills, towards the ultimate goal of winning prizes for their classroom.
