We just received two Wii programs — Mario Party 8 and Shrek. At our next Serious Games Testers Club, we’ll demo and discuss the genre of “party games.” June 1.
Tonight’s at the Serious Games Testers Club, we’ll have a first look at the Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean video game. Just a reminder that you must be a registered member in order to test games, but anyone is welcome to come and observe. Also, parents are encouraged to come.
Tonight we’ll have a look at Scratch, the new programming language from MIT and I’ll demo Marble Drop on the Wii.
Current members are Matt (10), Frank (13), Caleb (9), Ethan (11) and Matt (12). Check out Ethan’s review of Diddy Kong Racer, as a video!
It was a day of mixed emotions last Saturday at Mediatech.
It was Sarah Klingler’s last day as a supervisor… a job she has had for over two years. While at HCRHS, Sarah started attending Mediatech the day it opened. Sarah is known for her ability to control rowdy middle schoolers as well as her high score in Guitar Hero. Her little brother, Matt, promises to keep us updated. To recognize her service to Mediatech and our community, the board awarded Sarah with a $500 scholarship. We’ll miss you Sarah!
Wilson, our current supervisor will be joined by Kyle Inglin, who will start this week, working Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Please make him feel welcome! Kyle is a high school Junior who races cars for a hobby. In addition, Andy Barnett has joined Mediatech as a technician and research coordinator. Andy is in his second year student at NYU in the dramatic writing program at Tisch. He has experience with networking and game design.
