CCT Weekly May 5-11, 2013

CCT Highlights:

  • May 3 was Amanda Moody’s last day with us. She worked as Economic Development Interface since 2009 and served as lead staff member for the Red Stick International Animation Festival. We wish Amanda all the best and hope she will stay in touch.
  • May 3 was an important day for our colleague Robert Kooima who mentors video game development course. On this last day of class, students presented games they worked on throughout the semester. Top prize went to the team of LSU computer science major Joshua Harris. Their game, called C3, is a puzzle based on the manipulation of the character’s color. Follow CCT’s website for a story about the course and CCT’s role in it.  
  • The decision has been made to postpone our move, which will begin no sooner than June 3. Please keep the momentum going by packing what you can ahead of time.
