Sign-up for Video Game Workshop with Alum

Jeremy Bernstein, a Wesleyan Alum, will be offering a hands on Video Game Workshop for students on Nov. 7th, 9AM -12 Noon.

He is the designer and creator of Truth Invaders, an on-line game exposing untrue statements made by politicians.

Graduating from Wesleyan University a BA and MA in biochemistry, he left the sciences to pursue a MFA in screenwriting at USC. There his life-long interest in games led him to get involved with the Interactive Media program and with the Electronic Arts funded Game Innovation Lab.

He has since written and designed multiple “serious” and educational games, ranging from the on-line political call-to-action puzzle The Redistricting Game to the NSF funded first-person-shooter/high-school-immunology-textbook Immune Attack. He has also designed and written training games for groups ranging from intelligence analysts at the National Counter-Terrorism Center to emergency pediatric specialists at the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.

Contact Lea Carlson at lcarlson@wesleyan.edu to reserve one of the few openings.

Date: Friday, November 7
Time: 9 am – 12 noon

    Could you UStream this? Record a podcast? I’m in Maine – no way I can come down – but I’m teaching really basic game design and looking to incorporate more games and game design in the tech and core content curricula in our district. I’m very interested in the topic (Jeremy write a book yet?) and hope the session can be shared with the wider world in some way? Thanks – Sarah ’91
