This session is intended to introduce the mechanics behind the German American Manufacturing Exchange (GAME). GAME is a small project where multiple schools work together to produce various parts within a bigger project. The history, logistics and project components will be presented. This session will also serve as a forum for interested parties to create a similar project between various HTEC schools for a similar experience.
