Earlier this month, Ratchet & Clank hosted a fun event at Google in Venice, California to welcome the next generation of Junior Rangers!
RATCHET & CLANK, the new family event movie based on the PlayStation game, hosted a fun-filled Junior Ranger event for kids over the weekend at Google in Venice, CA. The afternoon included a preview screening of the animated movie, a Q&A with JAMES ARNOLD TAYLOR and DAVID KAYE (the longtime voices of Ratchet & Clank) and the movie’s director KEVIN MUNROE, moderated by Roth Cornet from Hitfix, as well as an animation demo by RAINMAKER and a game demo by INSOMNIAC. The event was designed to encourage inner-city kids and young girls to get hands-on experience with the technical side of animation and gaming.
Once the demos completed, the kids broke up into small groups and were challenged with designing a gadget for the RATCHET & CLANK universe. The winning groups received copies of the new RATCHET & CLANK PlayStation game.
The Junior Ranger event was attended by 130 students from the Downey School District who have implemented Project Lead the Way (Project Lead the Way is a United States 501 non-profit organization that develops STEM curricula for use by elementary, middle, and high schools) and have also started a “Femineers” program to encourage girls to learn and interact more with engineering and science. An additional 15-20 kids came from LA Makerspace program, which, like Project Lead the Way, is a non-profit organization focused on increased access to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) for low-income children, youth, and families.
