Preparations are underway for the 5th annual Virtual State Fair Week in Second Life September 10-16, 2012 featuring newly refreshed eXhibits, rides, and activities. To help out, send a message to Thynka Little at firstname.lastname@example.org, or drop by the fairgrounds during the month of August and pick up a virtual hardhat and hammer.
The Winter Safety Game is a newly built full-region immersive learning lesson about how to prepare for severe winter weather. The narrative takes your avatar through home, barn, and automobile safety checklists, and then sends you on a slippery journey to Grandma’s house to practice safe travel in blizzard conditions. Prizes are awarded for collecting points and reaching the final destination, and orientation for new users is embedded in the game. Start at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bailey/129/130/393
