A presentation of scientific games and a discussion moderated and lead by two representatives from GameLab of CRI-Centre de Recherche Interdisciplinaire in Paris.

Some of the ideas and topics of discussion are:

  • Where do science and games meet?
  • What are the most successful scientific games so far?
  • What makes a game truly educational in terms of science? (Science-themed vs science-based)
  • What kind of learning is best done with games vs. other media?
  • When and how should games be used in schools?
  • What makes a citizen science game work well?
  • What do non-scientists get out of participating?
  • What are the ethics around using scientific knowledge to improve retention, and do they exploit players?
  • What are the ethics around tracking players and their gameplay?
  • There seems to be a lack of interesting art styles in scientific games. Why is that?
  • Is this a symptom of a larger gap between art and science, and if so, how to bridge it?
  • Where would biology hackers see a need for a game?

Intended audience: 
Scientists, Designers, Biohackers anyone interested in scientific games.

Requirements: None.
