We had the opportunity to sit down and talk with the organizers of the Parkway Spark! student entrepreneur program in the Parkway school district in west St. Louis county.
In this audio only episode of the STLTechTalk Podcast, we bring you this compilation of interviews with the above mentioned organizers of the Parkway Spark! program, Jennifer Stanfill & Xanthe Meyer. We also have a pair of talks with some of the students participating in this "out of the box" High School offering to get their thoughts on their experience so far and what got them interested in signing up for the program. Then we finish the talk up with three interviews with different mentors who are volunteering to help guide these young entrepreneurs along.
For more information about the Parkway Spark! program, and how you can get involved, make sure to visit their website at www.parkwayspark.com.

We are joined by Greg Hammond from minMOG Games here on Episode 63 of the STLTechTalk Podcast!
About our guest
Greg Hammond has been involved in creative and management aspects of game development since 1981. Back in 1983, when there were only 6 colors (and nobody complained), Greg and his brother Eric made their mark with Julius Erving and Larry Bird Go One-on-One, the first sports game from Electronic Arts.
Over the past 3 decades, Greg has lead or contributed to the development of more than 35 interactive projects, including games, educational titles, virtual worlds and mobile apps. While working at Lucasfilm Games / LucasArts Entertainment (1989-1991), he produced several award-winning games, including The Secret of Monkey Island, Loom and Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe.
Greg was awarded Best Producer by his industry peers at the Game Developers Conference in 1991.
After starting a game studio in Novato, CA, in 1991, and creating several original games for SEGA, in 1994 Greg moved with his wife and 3 sons to St. Louis, MO, where he consulted remotely for game companies.
In 2007 Greg directed the design, development and launch of Build-A-Bearville, a web-based kids’ virtual world for Build-A-Bear Workshop in St. Louis. Over the past few years, Greg has been active in mobile app development as a project manager and design consultant for several private clients. Now, as Founder & CEO of minMOG LLC, Greg is excited about the upcoming release of the studio’s first original mobile game (due to release in January, 2015).
