UTA History Department: Teaching by Button Mashing

UTA’s Department of History held a live competition in the heart of Downtown Arlington last Wednesday. The competition was to promote the department’s newest class ‘History of Videogames’. Students competed for the highest score on classic games like ‘Defender’, ‘Missile Command’, and ‘Mario Brothers’ to be crowned champion. Like the new class, this event was the first of its kind for the department. However, with teachers eager to teach, and students eager to play, the event was a success and the department looks to add more events like it in the future.
