Location: Plaut Room

Finally, the much anticipated movie by Steven Spielberg is coming out next month! Check Ready Player One by Ernest Cline off your “must read” list.  In this futuristic dystopian novel, Wade Watts attempts to win the grand prize in a massive global Easter Egg hunt in a virtual reality world. Many clues require knowledge and mastery of 1980’s video gaming culture and nostalgia. Come join us to talk about the book and upcoming movie. You will get a chance to try out the Oculus Rift virtual reality system, demo Google cardboard VR, and play some retro video games hacked together with Raspberry Pi and a homemade controller. We will also have an Atari Flashback gaming console to play with. Let’s chat about Ready Player One, have some bagels, and explore virtual reality and games that are 80’s greaties!

Grades 7 & up.  Please register here.
