GameTruck Triangle, a patented mobile video game theater concept featuring flat-screen HDTVs, comfortable seating, a high-quality sound system and the latest video game consoles, announced the upcoming 2012/2013 application deadline for the GameTruck Triangle STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Grant for Triangle schools.“We support STEAM programs with the use of our platform, because we believe that STEAM education is creating future innovators to be forward-thinkers”, added Lizette Cruz Watko, owner and operator.
GameTruck Triangle is much more than a plush video gaming lounge; it complements its gaming capabilities with offering innovative educational programs designed to ignite kids’ interests and passion for science and technology.“Future generations and students require the necessary technology, math and engineering skills to create a better country and society. STEAM programs generate and provide these skills and experiences to allow our future students to become those scientists, engineers and creative thinkers who can turn the impossible into the realm of the possible”, said Eric Watko, owner and operator.
GameTruck Triangle will award up to $250 and a two-hour GameTruck celebration to one Triangle school. Any public, private, or parochial K-12 school with applicable programs that benefit children in Durham, Orange or Wake Counties are eligible to apply. Applications must be postmarked or received on or before January 31, 2013.
