EGS Receives Intel Grant
February 3, 2016
Starting this winter, more than 100 middle-school students from Philadelphia schools and community groups will try their hand at being video game designers, with an opportunity to play their games on one of the biggest screens imaginable: a 29-story building covered with LEDs. Drexel University’s Entrepreneurial Game Studio is working with young game designers-in-the-making to come up with new games for Brandywine Realty Trust’s Cira Centre office building, an edifice that has twice played host to the largest architectural video game display in the world.
The EGS is hosting a Game Design and Creative Code Workshop in Spring 2016. This program aims to increase the number of youth, ages 11-15, exposed to computer science education through free, online, and robust programming tutorials that will teach Python programming in an informal setting. With a generous gift from Intel, they are able to hold these workshops through Fall of 2016.
