Francis Tuttle Technology Center Rockwell Campus in Oklahoma City is hosting PixlFest on Thursday, March 28.  PixlFest is a conference for creative students from across Oklahoma.  Visit for information about PixlFest.  PixlFest has three basic “tracks” or areas that will be covered throughout the day.  The tracts are: Animation & Visual FX, Audio & Video Production, and Web & Programming.  There is no required fee for attending PixlFest.  Transportation will be provided; however, you will have to pay for your own meals and snacks.  If you wish to purchase a PixlFest t-shirt which costs $10, you will have to bring your money before this Wednesday. We will leave our campus at approximately 5 am that morning to travel to OKC.  We will return by approximately 7 pm that evening.  You will have to purchase your own lunch at the Tut’s Cafe at Francis Tuttle.  We will not leave the campus for lunch.  You will need to have an emergency medical authorization form signed by a parent or guardian. If you are interested in attending PixlFest you will need to email me a request  before this Wednesday.  The request needs to include the following:
