  • The prompt for the Game Jam is …. RETURN
    • Theme Inspiration: Touch Tomorrow began when WPI was selected by NASA to run the Sample Return Robot Centennial Challenge in 2012.  Teams designed robots to collect pre-cached and other samples and return them to a base, simulating how we might retrieve sample from Mars (or other planets) someday in the future!
    • Remember, interpret and implement the prompt however you see fit!  Get creative with everything from your story to game mechanics.

TouchTomorrow was originally launched in 2012 in celebration of WPI’s designation as host of NASA’s Sample Return Robot Challenge. 

Through the years, TouchTomorrow has held on to that same spark of curiosity, discovery and fun that first drew NASA to campus, while simultaneously building upon it with activities ranging from hands-on experiments and demonstrations, to lab tours and exciting stage programming.

The festival is also an integral part of WPI’s overall outreach and desire to strengthen the STEM pipeline for K-12 students.  Check out WPI’s Office of Pre-Collegiate Outreach Programs for more information on how your student can explore the STEM fields while honing their leadership and collaborative skills, building confidence and meeting new friends.

Since this year's festival is virtual, we've added in a Game Jam to not only celebrate all the things we love, but to help engage folks in a new and creative way!
