  City-wide Kickoff

All players should attend the Kickoff gathering at the Monroe County Public Library Auditorium. You will be assigned to small teams, get details about the game, and be tasked with generating ideas to shape the future of Bloomington. The auditorium will be available from 6:30p through 9p, but the main presentation will begin at 7p and will last no more than an hour. You are encouraged to interact with your group members and get technical assistance after the presentations have ended.

This is an important event to attend.

  The Game
Teams will work together at your own pace throughout the week to generate a solution for a better future. Daily in-person meetings are encouraged but not required to actively participate with your assigned group. Each individual will received information each day to share with team members as you respond to daily video messages from the main character in our game narrative. Teams earn points for their online participation and for solving puzzles that lead into locations around Bloomington.
     
  Training Sessions
Each day, SociaLens has arranged for two short introductory sessions about common digital platforms. There will be about 20 minutes of instruction on how to create an account and start using the tools, with time for one-on-one assistance with specific questions. Seating is limited, but these sessions will also be streamed over the Internet.
