The Econ Games are 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. Our event is in person in Lexington, KY on March 24-25, 2022. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place.
