Tiltfactor had the honor of hosting its first ever Game Jam in the lab as a part of the national Arctic Climate Game Jam (http://climategamejam.org). We had a great turnout, with creativity and free Thai food flowing through our participants’ veins. Esteemed Professor Ross Virginia, director of Dartmouth’s Institute of Arctic Studies, came and spoke to participants about the climate game jam and answered questions about climate change in general.
We split participants into 4 teams and they each will be creating games and coming back next week to present them. We will also be posting their projects on the blog next week. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
