The CoD Game Strategy
The Community On Demand Trading Card Game is built upon a basic critical thinking and problem solving system call The STEAM Investigative Process (STEAM I.P.). It uses 68 employable STEAM skills and 270+ service goals (competencies) that are displayed on the front of each STEAM Education trading card.
Community On Demand combines STEAM education, digital badging, applied learning and the compelling collectible and strategic game play of a trading card game (TCG) with entertainment and entrepreneurship to help young innovators and entrepreneurs strengthen their employable STEAM skills, launch business ventures and improve their community.
