Description

The EA SPORTS Madden NFL, NFLPA, and Discovery Education team invites your class to RUN the numbers, PASS the insights, and SCORE the skills needed to create the magic of Madden!

Join us as today at 1:00pm here: http://footballbythenumbers.discoveryeducation.com/virtual-field-trip
as special NFL host Antonio Brown, wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, takes students behind-the-scenes of EA Sports to learn how DATA dominates video game development! In this numbers-driven VFT, your class can play along as we demystify data, draw insights, and spark students’ curiosity in STEAM.

Tune in with your class to learn how:

  • Data collected from the NFL Combine's rookie event, from events like the 40-yard dash to the vertical jump, are used as inputs to create Madden NFL player rankings

  • EA SPORTS Madden NFL gathers thousands of data points on players - from their faces, to their gear, and more - to create the most realistic in-game experience

  • User data is analyzed to make the game more engaging and exciting!

Score a Touchdown with Your Class! Join the conversation LIVE during the premiere event by submitting questions and sending pictures during our Twitter chat! #ANumbersGameVFT

*Only available in the US.
