I have been a huge fan of both Technology and Steampunk since I was a kid. I majored in Computer Science at Hawaii Pacific University over 20 years ago because my love for technology, video games, and creativity was first and foremost in a career. This is why STEAM Fest is so important to me because I wanted to bring a mix of both STEAM Education and Steampunk history to the valley. I have lived all over the nation and I have been to and been a guest speaker at many Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Maker Events (from Las Vegas Comdex to NY Internet World) as well as Steampunk Fairs, Comic Con, and Video Games Events. I see how the two combined can bring a learning, historical, and FUN experience to the communities. And together thay can also encourage younger children to learn, play, and discover!
One of my favorite all time Steampunk Video Games for years was Fallout in 1997, some of you might not even have been born then, but it has been a love of mine through Fallout 1-4 and now the new release of Fallout 76. In fact, I was one of the few to interview the game developers at Bethesda years ago during their first release. I hope you enjoy the new trailer release as I have watching it my 100th time over! =)
