The Econ Games 2024

Sponsored by

Econ Games is an experiential learning program to allow students to use what they learned in the classroom and to apply it to a real-world problem. We work with data collaborators from industry, government, or think tanks to bring data and allow our participants to help answer questions. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place.

Econ Games 2024 will be hosted on March 21 and 22, 2024.
