STEM Brasil Director speaks at independent games festival
Marcos Paim, STEM Brasil Director and Educando’s Head of Technology, participated as a guest speaker at the BIG Festival – International Developers Conference & Games Exhibition – the largest independent games festival in Latin America, on July 1st in São Paulo.
Marcos Paim took part in the panel ‘BIG Impact: Building the Play – Learning Maker’. The panel’s main topic was creativity. Among all the activities we carry out on a day-to-day basis, there are those that have the power to bring us closer to the state of being creative. Inventing, building and playing are ways of putting creativity into action, and can be leveraged with objects, methods and platforms, bringing sense and meaning to learning.
Marcos participated along with Rafael Oliveira (Maker Robotics), Adalberto Pereira do Santos (FabLab CEU Três Pontes). The panel’s moderator was Leonardo Rosa, from Equipe FIRST.
Every year, BIG showcases the best independent games from around the world. This year’s edition received 140 Brazilian speakers, and others 70 foreign.
