While surfing the web for new ed-tech tools, I came across this amazing resource for college-bound students: Grantoo! Grantoo allows students to play educational games and win money towards college tuition, as well as win money for charitable causes. Students can also win discounts and prizes!
Sound too good to be true? It did to me too, and I’ll admit I was very skeptical. Upon investigating further though, it seems like Grantoo holds up to its claims. By partnering with private companies, Grantoo can host online competitions, where winners receive college tuition grants. These companies get advertising and philanthropic publicity, while students cash out towards their college degrees. All in all, the website seems like a great way for students to do what they love while earning some funds!
