Game changing!

Chapter 10 and Chapter 12 students interested in careers in gaming and programming attended in a superb event this week. Hosted by Liverpool Hope University, the event included some of the biggest names in the gaming industry. Organized by Liverpool City Region Careers Hub  and All About STEM, the event included representatives from playstation, NextGen, DrawtoCode, Lucid Games and Ripstone. The students learnt that Liverpool City Region (LCR) is home to some of the biggest Games Developers and publishers in the world. The students also learnt about concept design, marketing, testing, intellectual property, how characters are developed from the conceptual to the 3D models and even the role human psychology plays in the field. The students took part in a round robin of five, fabulous, bespoke events,  each designed to explore a different career option available in the Digital and Creative Sector. It was a superb event, and for those interested in a possible career in this field, it really was a game changing experience!
