The annual Stage 1 team games took place at Castle Leazes Halls of Residence on October 8th. These are designed to help our Stage 1 undergraduate students, who have only been on their courses for two weeks, to meet some more of their classmates. The students worked in teams to undertake a variety of challenges including building a device which would allow an egg to survive a drop and the classic team-building activity of constructing a bridge. The games were a great success and this year featured some of the most innovative attempts at solving the challenges that the organisers have ever seen. Well done to all the students, in all of the teams, who took part in the games!

A one day event, Creative Skillset (held in London, Monday-29th September) provided the School of Computing Science with a platform and opportunity to showcase the projects of our current students and alumni as well as promote our Games programmes both at UG and PG levels. The event was also useful in raising the profile and visibility of the School, the University and that of our industrial partner (Ubisoft) and our activities in Games Engineering/development.
