High school students attend a VIP day for Bradley’s Interactive Media Department’s FUSE showcase

PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — Students from five different high schools got a taste of Bradley’s Interactive Media Department at the Peoria Riverfront Museum on Friday.

The Peoria Riverfront Museum has once again partnered with Bradley’s Interactive Media Department to present FUSE on Saturday, April 29.

FUSE is a day where Bradley students showcase the skills they have learned throughout the year. FUSE will have a game art gallery, video showcase, dome animations, games, and more.

It is described as a unique showcase of interactive experiences and the culmination of the work of various majors in the interactive media department. The day is free to the public.

On Friday, 175 high school students came to the museum to peek and play with the exhibits as part of a “VIP day”.

FUSE Student Executive Producer Maddox Binder said, “This year is the very first VIP day we are hosting for students. In the past it was local professionals, but we really felt this year that we wanted to show students who are interested in the field exactly what they might be able to do.

Students came from Morton, Williamsfield, Peoria High, Peoria Manual, and Richwood High Schools.

This year’s FUSE will take place on Saturday, April 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Peoria Riverfront Museum and is free.
