Mad Scientist University is a storytelling game where each player in turn takes on the role of an evil genius Teacher's Assistant (TA) at the Mad Scientist University. Each TA holds a class challenging the students (everyone else) to come up with a way to meet a goal given certain elements listed on distributed cards (Create Perpetual Motion with Lawn Gnomes, for example). Each student brainstorms and then gives a short presentation detailing their plan, and the TA awards the card with the goal to the 'best' plan by whatever criteria the TA wishes (evil geniuses get to be snarky, after all). The winner is the student with the most won goal cards after everyone has led a course.
