MLK Day Speaker Extols Responsibility and Volunteerism

Shortly after 9/11, during the days of national shock, Sarah Varadian knew she had to do something. She listened to George Bush lash out against the terrorists and the oppressive regimes they supported. The President urged school children to give a dollar to charities that
work to educate children in areas like Afghanistan. Give a dollar to build schools where extremists condemned education, especially for women. This was the defining moment for Varadian. A dollar was a good idea, but for her, a dollar was not enough.

Ever wonder how those characters move around the screen in a computer game? How does that sword wielding hero know he has to walk around a wall or avoid a fire breathing dragon to fight the bad guys? The student members of the Hopkinton High School Programming Club now know how that happens.

Game Programmer and Author Dan Higgins discussed the topic with the young coders last Tuesday afternoon at the library. The January 11th library program was a follow up session to a December presentation, also done by Higgins, entitlef “Secrets of Game Development”.
