Area College Hosts Annual 'Geek Festival'

Killeen (August 17, 2014) Geeks of all ages spent the weekend at Central Texas College in Killeen for this year's Geek Fest.

The event allowed participants a chance to get a look at video and board games both old and new over a three day period.

Attendees also got involved a variety of technology related activities, and tested out some robotic gadgets.

"I think it's a great opportunity for Central Texas to have a place for kids to come and enjoy being able to be around video games in a safe clean environment," said Jennifer Piper, volunteer.

The festival allows the college to raise money every year for its ambassador program, which provides an array of outreach about the college to area children.

Organizers said this year's event was a success.

"We've learned that there's a lot of geeks," said Jennifer Hetzel, Geek Fest vendor liaison. "They don't always like to travel over an hour to get to conventions and they are willing to come here and spend time with other geeks, learn from each other, experience new things and just have a blast."
