Last month I had the chance to run a private webcast for some of the college students participating in the Themed Entertainment Association’s National Design Competition.
These students were given 7 weeks to design and build an original 500-square-foot escape room… and they could only work in teams of 1 or 2.
During the conversation, they asked many great questions. I had set aside 45 minutes to talk to them and we ended up talking shop for 90 minutes.
Stream the Event
The presentations will happen on Friday, April 26th at noon Pacific (3pm Eastern). The awards are scheduled for 2:30pm Pacific. (This is a change from the original time of 3:30pm Pacific.)
You’ll be able to stream this on YouTube Live:
I genuinely have no idea what to expect, as based on their questions I only have vague ideas of what some of these students were hoping to create… but I am excited to see what they have produced.
What’s TEA NextGen?
According the organization’s website, “The NextGen Initiative of the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) helps students and recent graduates find their way into the themed entertainment/ visitor attractions industry and facilitates TEA member companies’ ability to recruit from this fresh talent pool.”
For more information, check out TEA’s website.
Strangely enough the article states it starts at 12noon PST – 3pm EST but the embedded video link shows a 3 how timer and it starting at 3pm PST?
Hmm seems so.
Sorry y’all! This was our first streamed event, so the setting on the event on the stream may have been set incorrectly. The information in this post is correct! Hopefully you were able to tune in! Awards happen in 20!
