Fall Game Jam at NHTI

This weekend, dedicated programmers, artists and musicians will gather in NHTI's Little Hall to take part in a Game Jam: a marathon computer game development event.  A Game Jam brings together teams of individuals to collaborate and create computer games under very tight constraints.

The event will kick off at 5:00 pm Friday November 13.  After organizing teams, the participants will throw themselves headlong into their work for the next two days, with minimal time out for food and sleep.  At 5:00 pm on Sunday, the games must be ready for prime time.

The Fall Game Jam has become an annual tradition sponsored by NHTI’s department of Animation and Graphic Game Programming (AGGP), although participation is not limited to NHTI students.  This year’s Jam is co-sponsored by Citizens of Antiford, a New Hampshire Steampunk Creative Fiction Group, whose richly-imagined science-fictional world will provide the background for this year’s games.

Anyone who would like to take part in the Fall Game Jam should contact Professor Greg Walek at  The public is welcome to drop by Little Hall at 5:00 pm Sunday for a showing of the finished games.

Celebrate Rad Tech Week!

By Ashley Worthen, Rad Tech Freshman

Don’t you hate the constant question, “Have you decided on your career yet?”  Are you afraid you will never find a career exciting enough for you?  If you answered yes to either of those questions then you should really join NHTI in celebrating a worldwide event … National Radiologic Technology Week!

If you’ve ever had an x-ray before then you more than likely have met a radiologic technologist.  For those who may not know, radiologic technologists are the medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging examinations.  They’re educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care.  However, there are many fields one can go into besides x-ray.  This includes CT, MRI, mammography, ultrasound, and nuclear medicine.  The possibilities are endless!

To talk more about this interesting field, NHTI’s very own rad tech students will be available in the student center Tuesday November 10 and Thursday November 12 from 11 am to 1 pm.  Be sure to visit our booth to play games and win prizes, but more importantly to pick the brains of the students going through the program to see if this may be a field you are interested in.  Also, visit the library during this week to view the display set up to educate students on Diagnostic Medical Imaging.

NHTI’s Radiologic Technology program is deemed one of the best in the state.  This 24 month program ends with an Associate Degree in science with a major in Radiologic Technology.  The program isn’t just classroom taught.  Students are sent to hospitals throughout New Hampshire to learn in an intensive clinical setting.  Once completion of the program has been accomplished, graduates sit down for the National Registry exam to earn their certification in Radiography.  So join us in celebrating Rad Tech week! 


STEM Class Explores Vaccine Issues


Last Thursday October 29, students in the interdisciplinary course "STEM in the First Year Experience" took a special look at the controversial topic of vaccines.

INDL 101C examines topics which integrate the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math) with social science and the humanities. The class is being taught by Profs. Nathan Strong and Elibet Chase this semester, and vaccines are the STEM topic for the term.

On Thursday the class welcomed guest speaker Ms. Marcella Bobinski, Acting Director for the Division of Public Health Services in the NH Dept of Health and Human Services, who came to talk to the class about public policy regarding vaccines.  Ms. Bobinski directed a very instructive mini-workshop on the factors that influence public policy around this issue. The students then divided up into three groups representing medical practices, state government, and concerned parents, and explored how those three groups interact around the issue of vaccines.
