WISCA Goes to College!

In February, six students from the Watson Institute Social Center for Academic Achievement (WISCA) who are interested in careers in art, computer science, and programming, toured the Carnegie Mellon University Entertainment Technology Center (ETC). The Center showcases posters and relics of popular movies and games worked on by ETC alumni and students.


WISCA students tested a 4D game, simulating shooting arrows from the back of a running horse and they also experienced a demonstration of Alice, a software program designed at Carnegie Mellon University to educate students on coding and programming. WISCA students were inspired by their experience at the Entertainment Technology Center, learning more about the career opportunities available in art, computer science and programming.
