Whether you’re a casual gamer or you’re contemplating a career in information and communications technology, Tech Games Fest is for you. The fifth annual TGF will be held at Chisholm’s Frankston campus from June 29-July 1 and is an opportunity for secondary school students, their parents and the public who are interested in gaming and technology to learn and network with other like-minded people and industry representatives and get information about a career in the ICT industry.
TGF is free to attend and will cover gaming, networking, programming, virtual reality, ethical hacking, pop culture, card and board games, e-sports tournaments and video games. There will be talks from industry sponsors, and one of the highlights is sure to be the popular cosplay competition.
“TGF is a place where anyone can go to find out about the latest technology, feel part of a community and get ideas of where they could go in their career or what they could be connected to,” said TGF co-ordinator Andrew Owen. “Chisholm is the ideal place for TGF because of its courses, and its feel and approach to ICT-related fields.” There are also opportunities for students to participate in TGF as volunteers or placement for work experience.
TGF is on from 10am-6pm each of the three days at Chisholm TAFE, Building D, Fletcher Rd, Frankston and registration is essential. Children under 14 need a parent or guardian with them to attend. Further information and booking details are available at www.chisholm.edu.au/tgf
