Press Start: Connecting Student Gaming Interests to Success in STEM

Would you rather be playing video games right now?

Are you seeking more representation for indigenous and Latinx people in the world of programming and game design at your institution?

Are you wondering about ways you can connect your love for gaming with your passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics?

This conference is for you! It is time to look at gaming through alternative lenses in STEM! Indigenous speaker, bona fide gamer, and Oklahoma University researcher Angélica Romines (Chickasaw, Choctaw, Mississippi Choctaw, Mexican) will talk about the ways that the modern age in gaming has created a culture of identity-forming, positive community, socio-emotional growth, and community leadership. She’ll also discuss ways that you can get involved with gaming in your college journey and into your professional life! Don’t miss it!
