Bowdon High School Future Business Leaders of America attend Southern Interactive Entertainment & Game Expo (SIEGE)

On October 4, 2018, 18 students from Bowdon High School FBLA attended the SIEGE College Fair.  The Georgia Game Developers Association, Inc. has sponsored the Southern Interactive Entertainment and Game Expo for the past 12 years. While most people are aware of video games as an entertainment product, there exists a general lack of awareness that game development requires highly-educated and specialized skill sets in physics modeling, artificial intelligence, massively-scalable networking infrastructures, digital security, graphic design, 3D animation, project management, and intellectual property law, among others. The students moved through several workshops learning about career opportunities, college degrees, free resources, and even how to create their own game! They enjoyed a college fair where they received information from several colleges offering a variety of Computer Science degrees. They had the opportunity to talk with college students and exhibitors about many new and exciting paths of study.
