As lead organizer of Startup Weekend Education Pittsburgh, I had the privilege of watching Project Playground grow from an exciting idea to the winning pitch of the competition. Their educator-led team quickly won over the judges, many of whom told me they were ready to buy their product on the spot.

I recently followed up with Melissa, Jordan, and Garrett, and was thoroughly impressed with the traction they've accumulated in just a few months. If I could join a startup right now, this would be it.

Pittsburgh's education technology scene has scored some pretty impressive grand slams so far - I think Project Playground is poised to be the next big thing.
