Walter YuanSometimes Economics is Fun and Games!

Walter M. Yuan, CEO and co-founder of MobLab, was at Rasmuson Hall Monday to demo MobLab’s interactive software for economics games and experiments. The College of Business and Public Policy’s Center for Economic Education will be working with MobLab to develop free software for use in high school economics classes to promote economic and financial literacy in K-12 education.

Walter managed the social science experimental laboratories at Caltech for over a decade before founding MobLab in 2011 with Stephanie Wang, who is a faculty member at University of Pittsburgh.

MobLab is an EdTech startup focused on bringing interactive experiments to economics, management and the social sciences, both in and out of classrooms. Students can participate using their mobile devices or laptops—learning becomes active and immersive.
