All Week:
Make change happen!!! Vote for Change Agent, a game conceived by Dr. Deborah Gibbons from NPS’s Department of Defense Management & built by the MOVES Future Tech team. The game is a finalist for the “Best Game for Government Audience” at the Serious Games Showcase & Challenge (SGS&C). You can drop by the SGS&C booth (3181) to play the game and see if you can overcome institutional inertia to change things for the better!!! Deborah and Eric Heine of the Future Tech team will be demonstrating their game all week.
Each I/ITSEC attendee gets a ballot with their registration, so submit yours for Change Agent in the SGS&C booth.
