FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention is excited to introduce the First Annual Utah S.T.E.A.M. Games Competition. Students from grades K to 12 are eligible to participate.
We are going to organize a Utah STEAM Games to kick off before the end of the school year with the finals that will occur during FanX in the Fall. The contest / games will center around a focus of each or multiple components of S.T.E.A.M. and the relationship to fantasy, sci-fi, and pop culture.
For example the science of spider-man, Dr. Manhattan, lightspeed travel, the Hulk, X-Men, beaming down from the Enterprise, the Tardis, etc.
The tech of Ironman, Batman, Black Panther, R2D2, etc.
The math of a parsec and the kessel run, time travel, Death Star tractor beams, etc.
Contestants can also invent their own superpower, tech, etc.
The contestants will use art, video, etc. to convey the concepts to be voted on by their peers online. Finalists will be displayed at the Utah STEAM Games pavilion at the Salt Palace Convention Center during FanX.
If you have suggestions for this project, please comment below. If you think Art should not be part of it, try playing a video game or watching a Marvel movie without art....
If you are super anxious to be involved and have an appropriate background, message Sara Jones.
The Utah STEAM Games will be a component of LUV which is our new League of Utah Volunteers initiative.
FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ 2018 is September 6 - 8, 2018 at the Salt Palace
