STEM Video Game Challenge
On Saturday, January 21st, nearly 500 students and educators gathered at Norfolk State University for the Community TechFest and STEM Video Game Challenge Training. Thanks to a small Corporation for Public Broadcasting Ready to Learn grant, WHRO was able to partner with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, One Economy, Norfolk State University and PBS Kids to bring training in video game design theory to Norfolk State’s Robinson Technology Center and to encourage local participation in the annual National STEM Video Game Challenge. In addition to the hands-on technology training, the Community TechFest featured exhibits, presentations, demonstrations and giveaways, all promoting digital literacy.
After participating in the training, Kirk Lindsay, an 8th grade student at Smithfield Middle School in Isle of Wight County, won one of the national awards.
