History

In the spring of 2015 the ESS started a new charity, a 24 hour game stream. During the stream Engineering students gather and play video games nonstop for 24 hours while streaming on Twitch.tv for the public to watch and donate to. Our first game stream raised $745, which we donated towards Child’s Play, a charity that provides games systems, toys, and other forms of entertainment to children going through medical treatment.

In the summer of 2015, we again ran the 24h Game Stream. We surpassed the first event, raising $1000, which again was donated towards Child’s Play.
