Lead Speaker:
Bowen Kerins
David Hammett


How are game shows built? How can games be designed to be compelling, fun to play, and fun to watch? Game shows lead to interesting problems in probability and statistics but also in modeling. We'll look at problems contestants face, but we'll focus on problems designers face when building games. Stop in for some math, some fun, and invaluable prizes!
