Dan Schneiderman and Robert Mostyn were featured Nov. 7 at Downstairs Cabaret Theatre for RocGrowth Candids. While being employed by RIT, each has extended their reach into the community much beyond the campus boundaries. Stephen Jacobs, RIT professor and visiting scholar for the National Center for the History of Electronic Games, led the discussion.

Schneiderman, K-12 University Center Senior Outreach Specialist at RIT, is one of the co-chairs of Maker Faire Rochester, a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do.

Mostyn is founder of ROC Game Dev, an organization that supports and promotes indie game development in Rochester. ROC Game Dev hopes to provide a place where small indie studios can work, interact with others, and learn from each other.
