A Pirate’s Tale

Students in computer science and industrial design at North Carolina State University have developed a game that lets kids experience history anew in "Blackbeard’s Escape." The game is fun way for kids to learn about the Queen Anne's Revenge, Blackbeard's flagship which ran aground off the North Carolina coast in 1718. Players of "Blackbeard’s Escape" are able to experience the action of interactive ship battles through flashbacks to the 1700s, learn about good diving practices, and explore artifact recovery and conservation.

A Yellow Ribbon Campus

As we take time to celebrate our nation's independence this weekend, we also reflect on the fact that our continued freedom exists because of the men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces. In an effort to show both respect and gratitude for their efforts, NC State is participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program, a dollar-for-dollar matching program that picks up where the existing G.I. Bill may fall short, potentially limiting any financial roadblocks in our veterans' pursuit of education on campus.
