Very Serious Gaming Talk

Did you know that games can do more than just entertain us? Video games are often used as tools for teaching and training. For example, the Canadian Army currently uses gaming technology for military training. To find out more, you can come see a presentation by Doug Brown, hosted by the School of Computing. This seminar will discuss work that done at the Army Simulation Center right here in Kingston!

The seminar is scheduled for Friday March 11, from 11am to 12pm, in Walter Light Hall 302. You can find out more at this link.
