S.E.A.L. Tag

In the search for an environment that allows brains and imagination to compete in the real world we built upon the concept of open source Laser Tag to provide real world skills out of the classroom.  The goal of the project is to provide a novel, national framework that will allow students to pit their wits and skills against each other in a sort of technological Olympics for the 21st century. In this game Knowledge is Power. 

While this project does not aim to teach everything it is designed to provide an excellent footing from which to work.
