4-H and Super Geeks partner to blend gaming and career skills


Kids: Do you love board games, card games and video games?

Parents: Do you want to know how your child’s love of game play can translate into career skills?

Kosciusko County 4-H is partnering with Super Geeks & Gaming to offer a hands-on exploration of game structure, play and design through the new Clover Gaming Connection Club opportunity.

Participants will study and play card and board games while being challenged to design their own game as a demonstration of career skills gained during the program. Youth in grades 7-12 are invited to join this group meeting Tuesdays from June 4 to July 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Super Geeks and Gaming, 322 N. Detroit St.

Registration for the six-session series costs $20 and should be sent with completed form to Purdue Extension Kosciusko County by May 31.

Forms can be found online at extension.purdue.edu/kosciusko/article/34456 or requested from the Extension Office by calling 574-372-2340. Questions can also be directed to 4-H Extension Educator Mindy Wise at wise25@purdue.edu.
