Immune Attack 2.0: Evaluating Learning with an Adventure Game in the Molecular World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Immune Attack is an immersive video game designed as an introduction to classroom instruction. An understanding of the atomic nature of the world, behavior of molecules, proteins and cells is key to understanding the natural sciences. However, these concepts are neglected in schools and in informal science education for the public. Concepts such as nanoscale, protein ineractions and organelle function can be appropriately presented in the context of a game. We present our data.
