Season 2 Episode 5
We’ll take you inside this year’s Chillenium, the nation’s largest collegiate game jam, where students were tasked with creating a video game from scratch in just 48. It’s also an important networking opportunity for Aggies hoping to get into the games industry.
Automotive engineering is another area where students can get hands-on experience. Texas A&M’s chapter of the Society of Automotive Engineers builds race cars and enters them in national competitions. From the workshop to the track, this entirely student-led organization shows us the ropes of building a car from the ground up.
Also, find out how our state’s first responders are training at Texas A&M through the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX). Whether they’re learning advanced driving techniques or how to safely detect and dispose of unexploded ordnances, it happens here
Later, our host heads into the classroom to try her hand at floral design, one of the most sought-after courses on campus. Chelsea learns about the floral design industry and makes an arrangement of her own.
The episode ends with a conversation between Reber and Welsh, who was named interim president of Texas A&M University on July 30.
