While we pride ourselves on education in the United States, mathematics is one area of study that needs drastic improvement. TiViTz is a game that can help solve that problem by helping students of all ages improve their game and minds by playing TiViTz. TiViTz was created by Steve Scully and uses themes that kids love: space, aqua, hockey, safari, golf and baseball.

Steve Scully formed SAS Games, Inc. (which is the parent company of TiViTz) along with CEO Siobhan Mullen, who is a former aerospace executive. Siobhan knows firsthand about the importance of cultivating a love for and intense understanding of math.

Roxanne Wilder spoke with Steve Scully and found out how the idea to invent TiViTz came about. TiViTz has been embraced by school systems, after school clubs, parents and kids.

TiViTz fever quickly spread among students eager to compete and challenge themselves. TiViTz Tuesdays has become a weekly ritual for students; they go to any participating McDonald’s to compete every Tuesday afternoon.

As the school year comes to an end, TiViTz competitions are in full swing. On Saturday, June 7, Tampa Bay area 4th through 8th graders will gather to compute & compete for $15,000 in college scholarships! The Ripken Baseball TiViTz Championship will be held Saturday, June 7 at the Student Services Building, Hillsborough Community College, Dale Mabry Campus. Students will arrive by 1 P.M. and the awards ceremony will begin at 4:30 P.M. Winners will be invited for a pre-game presentation prior to the Tampa Yankees game at Steinbrenner Field.

Hear all about TiViTz and the excitement of the upcoming TiViTz Championship in Steve’s interview with Roxanne.
