What are the Academic Games?
Academic Games is a set of individual and team competitions in both logic and reading games. The Brother Martin Academic Games team plays the mathematical games of Equations and On-Sets, the language arts game of Propaganda, and the social studies game of Presidents. We are planning to host LinguiSHTIK and World Events tournaments this year so that our students can compete in those games at the national tournament.

What do we do?
We compete against schools from all over the greater New Orleans metro area. Students who place well at the local competitions can represent Brother Martin at the annual national tournament held in the spring

Who can play?
Academic Games is an extracurricular for students in all grade levels who like to learn new ideas or like to “out think” their friends.


When are practices?
We practice every MondayTuesday, and Wednesday from 3:10 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. in room 119. If you would like to know more about the team, then see Mr. Zeller.
