Success of Tech Games Fest virtually guaranteed

When Chisholm Institute’s sixth annual Tech Games Fest came up against the COVID-19 pandemic, it was hardly surprising that organisers would turn to technology to allow the highly popular event to go ahead.

And so they did: for the first time, the entire event will be live streamed from Chisholm’s Frankston campus from June 27-29.

The three-day TGF is an opportunity for secondary school students, their parents and members of 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 information and communications technology industry.

This year TGF will be hosting a hackathon in conjunction with Frankston Foundry. Hackathon developers will showcase completed projects on stage via the live stream. TGF will also feature gaming, networking, programming, virtual reality, ethical hacking, pop culture, card and board games, e-sports tournaments, video games, talks from industry sponsors and more, including the popular cosplay competition. 

“TGF is a place where anyone can 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 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 virtually in TGF as volunteers or placement for work experience.

TGF will be live streamed daily from 10am to 6pm, and registration is essential – just go to and follow the links. TGF is free to take part in but a gold coin donation to nominated charity TLC for Kids is encouraged.
