Great Lakes Game Day
Thursday, April 4th, 2019
3:30 – 9pm
Fanshawe College, St. Thomas Elgin Regional Campus
120 Bill Martyn Parkway, St. Thomas ON
On April 4th, eighty students from the ‘Game Design’ program at Fanshawe College in London will be travelling to St. Thomas. The Fanshawe students have designed their own video games, and we are looking for high school students from St. Thomas to play-test the games and vote on which game is the best overall!
This is where things get really interesting: we have just 50 spots for high school students, and the students who are selected will be paid to play video games … that’s right, we are looking for 50 high school students in St. Thomas to be professional gamers for the day! The team at the STEAM Centre in St. Thomas will be coordinating this part of the experience … every student will earn $20 and receive a certificate confirming their status as a ‘professional gamer’ at Great Lakes Game Day. This is a great thing to include on future college or university applications.
