Our Mission STEAM: Hughes Who Technologies Studio is a non-for-profit organization of Hughes Who Technologies, that uses art, technology and gaming to enhance the academic, social and creative skills of at-risk youth; and prepares young adults for future employment in the gaming industry. Our motto: “Don’t just play the game, get in the game.”
What We Do!
Hughes Who Technologies Studio is committed to raising the percentage of the under-served in the diversity-lacking gaming industry by raising awareness of opportunities and exposing students to the fundamentals of game design, animation, art and other technologies through our STEAM workshops and apprenticeship program.
Hughes Who Technologies Studio workshops infuse art and creativity into the STEM experience through gaming and animation workshops conducted at schools, churches, museums, or other organizations. Students learn how to use the most important computer they possess - their brains - to produce game ideas, characters, and animation videos. They also learn beginning coding and create simple games through programs such as Scratch™ and Unity™. These workshops promote critical thinking, collaboration, writing , artistic and presentation skills. It can help reinforce your current curriculum which is especially beneficial to those who learn differently.
