Power Game Day a huge success

The Video Game Design Technology program held its 5th Annual NEIT Power Game Day on October 24th with a record audience in attendance. Students were treated to industry insights from speakers from Sonalysts Studios, Defective Studios, WGBH Digital, Dassault Systemes SIMULA, Muzzy Lane Studios, Fablevision, Disco Pixel, VT MAK DiGuy, and animator and NEIT adjunct instructor Pete Paquette.

During the mini-trade fair, students interacted with the speakers to gain additional information and to network. Several student teams exhibited games they had created and developed in their coursework, getting valuable feedback from the crowd of game testers.

Evening video game tournaments were sponsored by NEIT’s Game Developer’s Network Student Club. The event was a fundraiser with all proceeds going to Hasbro Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network as part of the national “Extra Life” gaming marathon fundraisers. Winners were crowned in three tournament games, Guitar Hero, Super Mario Brother’s Smash Mouth, and Injustice.

NEIT Hosting Alternative Fuel Vehicle Inspection Workshop

In Collaboration with Ocean State Clean Cities Coalition  

New England Institute of Technology will host a two day workshop on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Vehicle Fuel System Inspections on October 24, 2014, and October 31, 2014. This training is funded by a U.S. Department of Energy grant awarded to Maine Clean Communities, a program of the Greater Portland Council of Governments (GPCOG), and other Northern New England Clean Cities Coalition grant partners.

These workshops will focus on CNG vehicle fuel system inspections and are designed for fleet managers and technicians who want to learn more about compressed natural gas and its considerations for vehicle use. New England Tech faculty will present the following topics: theory, equipment, safety, and good work practices; types of cylinders and fuel system components; how to visually inspect CNG cylinders and fuel system components for damage and deterioration; construction techniques and material types used in CNG cylinder manufacturing, safe storage of CNG cylinders, recognizing various failure models; safe handling of CNG cylinders and fuel lines; and required reporting procedures.

In addition, hands-on activities will provide participants with the opportunity to perform CNG vehicle fuel system inspections on a CNG vehicle.

“This workshop is a terrific opportunity for New England fleet managers and technicians to learn more about compressed natural gas and the technical considerations of fueling and cylinder inspection,” said Wendy Lucht, Ocean State Clean Cities Coordinator.

This two day workshop will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at New England Tech’s Access Road campus, 101 Access Road, Warwick, RI.  Preregistration is required in order to attend, visit

EXHIBITION: We were part of an exhibition on Vampires, The Blood is the Life, at  the Everthart Museum in Scranton PA  .  The exhibition had about 6,000 visitors.  It won a special achievement  award from PA museums“The Tillinghast Nightmare trailer Historical Haunts put together for our exhibit THE BLOOD IS THE LIFE on vampires in art and nature perfectly illustrated the narrative of how diseases were often woven together with the causes of vampire epidemics in history. The focus of the film on the American experience of vampires highlighted an overlooked, and seldom-thought-of, social history detail that greatly informs how people look at disease and epidemics, as well as monsters, today.” ~ Nezka Pfeifer, Curator, The Everhart Museum of Natural History, Science & Art, Scranton, PA.
