Volunteer Coordination Meeting
Jul 30 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Everything we do at Tech Valley Game Space is enabled by our enthusiastic members and volunteers. We are so grateful for your support, and we’re always striving to find new ways to leverage our collective energy to help the Capital Region game dev community thrive. We believe that the key to doing that is empowering all of you to take on a more active role in helping our local game development scene grow and flourish. With that in mind, we want to invite everyone to attend our volunteer coordination meeting. Many of you have been asking how you can get more involved with our group efforts, and this meeting will be a great chance to do just that. The plan is to hang out together at TVGS, eat some snacks, have a good time and discuss ideas for how we can improve our community. We’ll also be performing a communal evaluation of how we organize our current volunteer efforts, and gathering feedback about how we can more effectively translate our ideas into action. We’ll take a look at the existing process for tracking tasks via our Trello board, and discuss opportunities for bringing in new members to help fulfill “officer” roles and guide the future direction of TVGS. We’ve done so many great things together, and there’s no limit to what we can accomplish as long as we remain dedicated to improving. So, let’s get organized!

2016 Annual STEAM Youth Conference @ The Beeches Professional Campus
Jul 31 – Aug 2 all-day
2016 Annual STEAM Youth Conference @ The Beeches Professional Campus | Rome | New York | United States

Project Fibonacci

is the brainchild of ANDRO Computational Solutions, LLC, a small scientific research company located in Rome, NY.  Leonardo Pisano Bonacci (nicknamed “Fibonacci”) was the famed 12th- and 13th-Century mathematician who “discovered” a branch of mathematics that neatly describes emergent patterns in the realms of science, engineering, nature, art and music.

The Project Fibonacci STEAM Youth Conference will tightly blend science and art themes through a series of all-encompassing Fibonacci STEAM-themed tracks held during the week-long summer event.  Each day includes a complement of local and regional experts, instructors and authoritative sources on various STEAM topics, changing topics day-by-day. Tours are going to be going to off-site locations, including art museums, scientific research centers, and music production studios.

As part of the conference, we have booked celebrity keynote speakers to address the various STEAM topics.  Go to our Speakers Page to learn more about them! You can also view the complete schedule for the conference here.

The ultimate goal of Project Fibonacci is to promote the next wave of young scholars and productive citizens by positively motivating and enlightening them.
