Beats Oration

Profile Pic small.jpg

I'm Joe Haig, a game developer, musician, teacher and author. I love inspiring teachers to integrate Computer Science into their curriculum and I've mentored students in Junior Robocup at the national level. I also love helping students learn how to make their ideas a reality. Recently I spent a year in an innovation hub creating the "digilogue" mobile music game TWANG. You can check it out HERE!
