Computer Clubhouse Holiday Programs

The Lakewood Computer Clubhouse is offering two special programs for youth and teens during the holiday break.

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (December 21-23) the program will be the RPG Academy. During these three days the participants, as a team, will be creating a truly unique role-playing game for Lakewood’s Promise using a variety of art, music, video and game design software. This finished game will be aimed at Lakewood youth and published in early-spring. RPG Academy will take place at the Clubhouse at Harrison Prep, 8800 121st SW in Lakewood from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. Youth and teens interested in game design, art and music are encouraged to be a part of this project.

The following week, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (December 28-30), the program is entitled “Linux Super-User” and will take place at the Clubhouse at Lakewood Presbyterian Church, 8601 104th St SW in Lakewood. Youth and teen participants will learn about open-source software and managing a Linux system. They will do this by installing and testing games, Linux live distributions, and other applications on the computers in the Clubhouse. Amidst all of this will be ping-pong, foosball, LAN games and epic boffer sword battles.

The Computer Clubhouse, an outreach of Pierce College, is a FREE after-school program that partners youth, ages 10-18, with technology and caring mentors. To find out more information about the Clubhouse and to register for these programs, please visit lakewoodclubhouse.us.
