I am a 4-H Leader for a science and technology club in Bend. For the last two years I have taken a team to the Oregon Game Project Challenge competition. Explanation; I lead a herd of young geeks and nerds who design their own computer games. TechStart is an educational foundation introducing and encouraging technology education for youth. So, I am looking for a few mentors or techies to speak at our up coming Game Jam here in Central Oregon. This is a chance to influence the future, talk about your experiences and work in technology, and score a free pizza lunch. It is a non-profit, so no fees distributed that day, but we might be able to find a tee shirt for you. No programming will happen that day, just some workshops on gaming strategy and design concepts.
Bring you middle or high school students to learn more about the game competition. more info here: http://www.ogpc.info/game-jam/ . Please contact me, Laura, if you have questions or want to volunteer, or have your kids participate.
