Family Gaming Fun & Giveaway with Power UP at the Science Museum

I am really excited to tell you about Power UP a fantastic new gaming event that is being held at the Science Museum this summer and runs from Friday 22nd July until Sunday 7th August and features the very best video games, computers and consoles from the past 40 years.

What is Power UP?

Running in partnership with leading gaming specialists European Gaming League (EGL), gamer girls and boys are in for a museum experience like no other. With over 160 systems and hundreds of games that are all fully operable and available to play on - from Pong and Pacman to Lego and Halo - there is something to suit beginners and experts, competitive parents, multiplayers, retro fans and everybody else in between.

The very latest Next Gen consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One will be on hand alongside classic PC titles Mario Brothers and Sonic the Hedgehog and a host of Disney and Batman games. So parents and kids alike can each show off their skills to the other!

Split into multiple zones, featuring the most loved and popular games linked by theme, content and brand – from Atari and SEGA to PlayStation and Nintendo, Power UP offers players of all ages the perfect opportunity to experience science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) at its liveliest -up-close and hands-on.

Early programmable computers and classic 80s educational games will also be playable alongside the most current and contemporary of games - highlighting just how far and fast gaming culture has developed over the past 40 years.

Here's a clip all about the event:
