College of DuPage Game Development Team Wins SkillsUSA Gold Medal
Jul 27, 2017 5:14 PM -
Lexie Wilterdink (Bloomingdale) and Tucker Wolf (Itasca) recently won gold medals in Interactive Application and Video Game Development (College Division) at the 2017 SkillsUSA National Leadership Conference. Wilterdink and Wolf, along with Adel Labadi (Lombard) and Sam Wohlrab (Bloomingdale), spent more than five months developing a virtual reality-enabled game called "Fracture." The four-member team took a silver medal in the SkillsUSA state competition behind another College of DuPage team, consisting of Rafael Lameter (LaGrange) and Dan Murphy (Downers Grove). However, the state champions were unable to attend the national competition, and because only two-member teams can compete at nationals, Wilterdink and Wolf were selected to present their team's game.
