That time of the year has come. (Play scary music). THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.
After a great summer off school season, one tends to dread walking into school for the first day of a new semester minus the social aspect of meeting up with your collegiate friends. How can we make this upcoming semester a better experience?
By switching back into school. Wondering what that means? #switchingbackintoschool
Simply imagine, being surrounded a by few friends during leisure time on campus, playing Splatoon 2 on your Nintendo Switch. Switching back into school is bringing gaming into an educational environment.
This is the best way to relax and kill time in between classes and even socialize with your classmates. Whether you are playing a solo game of Zelda Breath of the Wild or playing a multi-player game like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
How can we make gaming more than just a time killing in between classes social event? How can gaming become a permanent part of an educational environment?
Picture a tournament being hosted at your local campus for Super Smash Brothers using the new Nintendo Switch. How much more fun would it be starting a new school semester be? Wait, isn’t school an environment for strictly learning, studying and pursuing your degree to ensure a better future?
We don’t believe so; this year, Brass City Gamers Tournament will bring a new form of education and fun into school.
Let’s level up by involving the student body in making a difference and impacting the community’s major issues such as homelessness, lack of education, poverty, etc. Imaging having internship positions available to students that will involved them in STEM learning through the gaming industry and the vast technologies involved within the industry.
While the student is learning he/she is also contributing to a greater good within the local community.
The above-described image is what we are looking to offer as an organization for this year and the upcoming years. We will be planning in hosting many charity based tournaments to raise funds and contribute to citywide benefits.
