Service Description

**Tailored for Ages 9-12, this is a 5-week pilot workshop with single day drop ins available** The pilot runs Feb 2-March 8th. We are hoping to spin this into a recurring Friday night event. Seats are limited to 12 tickets per night. We hope you'll be part of the founding crew. Ticket sales help us purchase the NES game boxes and screens, donations are always welcome, too. Premise: Discover how a simple game box from the '80s and '90s rose to fame and continues to shape pop culture even four decades later. Course Highlights: 🕹️ Gaming Time: Immerse yourself in the world of classic NES games with hands-on gaming sessions. 🧠 Anthropological Deep Dive: Explore the chemical impact on our brains as we play, unravel the cultural influence of NES on society, and delve into its rich historical relevance. 🌐 Explore the recurrence of symbols and icons in NES games across various versions. Gain insights into the profound impact these elements have on shaping our understanding of gaming culture. As a fun project, we'll leverage these insights to craft our own NES 'zine, sharing cheats and hints—just like the good old days when we exchanged secrets in our Trapper Keepers. 🍕 Friday Night Treat: Enjoy a slice of the action with complimentary pizza and beverages provided every Friday night! -----We offer two convenient ways for families to sign up----- --Individual Class Sign-Up ($65 per class): Reserve any Friday within the 5-week period based on availability.
