Polytechnic students kick off new campus tradition with Extreme Innovation Games
Fifteen student groups are vying for votes to help make their invention of a campus-wide game a reality. The Extreme Innovation Games (XI Games) is a new tradition in the College of Technology & Innovation that challenges freshmen to create a game that is innovative, engaging, hands-on and designed for college and campus-wide participation. Inventing and pitching a game is part of the freshman ASU 101 course in the College of Technology & Innovation.
The interdisciplinary teams have been working for the past two weeks to develop video pitches that are posted on the XI Games website. Text voting starts Nov. 30 and ends Dec. 8, and will determine which game will be played on campus in the spring of 2012. Winners will be announced at the Late Night Break-feast on the Polytechnic campus on Dec. 9. Each group is assigned a keyword and votes are cast by texting that keyword to 37607. Voting is open to the public.
