Student Leads “Game Jam”
A special thank you to FLVS student Steve Berdy and the FLVS Coding Club for creating “Game Jam” to celebrate National Digital Learning Day.

Awards were given to teams for best overall game, funniest game, most artistic game, most realistic art, most unusual game, and best use of theme.
