GAME ON! at the Museum of Life & Science

In Durham and the Research Triangle Region, video games aren't just all fun and games. They're big business for companies, colleges, and universities. The Triangle's booming video game technology industry boasts over 40 video games companies employing more than 1,500 people. Additionally, more and more institutions of higher education offer courses of study centered around the gaming industry.

Needless to say, gaming is hot in the Bull City; especially among teenage enthusiasts - the future of the gaming industry. For those young fans, the Museum of Life & Science is hosting a special event.

"Game On!" will be tomorrow, Friday, February 17 from 6-9PM. Game On! offers teens the opportunity to play some of the hottest games on the market as well as meet and learn first hand from the professionals behind the gaming industry including programmers, designers and artists.

Redstorm Entertainment and Virtual Heroes are just a few companies that will be onsite. Check out who's coming on the Museum of Life & Science's webpage. Participants must be age 13-18 to attend, registration requested.

  1. I think it is unfortunate that this is limited to only teens. I'd like to be able to come and participate, particularly as we look for partners in developing educational games for worldwide distribution.
