Gaming Student Mentors Teen in Potentially Life-Changing Encounter

Pennsylvania College of Technology facilitated “A Little Love” this month for a young technology fan available for adoption. The college’s gaming and simulation lab in the Breuder Advanced Technology and Health Sciences Center hosted WBRE-TV’s monthly segment that showcases children seeking a permanent family. Chris Langlois, WBRE’s morning co-anchor, watched Penn College information technology sciences-gaming and simulation student James C. Temoshenko, of Kane, share his expertise with 13-year-old Mitchell. The Feb. 5 experience served as a confidence booster and career-exploration activity for the teenager, who proved to be a quick study in developing a computer game. (He even created a personalized second level to the game during the 60-minute lesson!) The segment aired throughout the day on Wednesday and is available online.
