The New Jersey High School Math Meltdown is an exclusive, virtual event for High School students (grades 9-12) in New Jersey. This virtual event will take place from October 4–7 when students will log into DimensionU with their free account and play our multiplayer math video games called Meltdown and TowerStorm.
