Hello Tractor hosted it’s first #GoodofGaming Day event, to celebrate technology, with co-collaborators T.A.G., and POP UP ARCADE DC. We hosted twenty students, at Impact Hub DC, for an afternoon of free gaming on retro and current consoles.
In addition (and more importantly) we provided interactive sessions, teaching student, traditionally underrepresented in tech, how to code for game apps. Because we love tractors, we taught them a bit about how we are using technology to sustainably increase farming productivity in Africa; while giving them hands on experience building their very own tractor video game. Along with our partners, Boomtown Bingo and POP UP ARCADE DC., we hope to continue to participate in and promote events that will improve science and math outcomes in urban schools.
