Who can participate?
Students as competitors
We invite students to make games prototype (games at large) to open education and science to anyone willing to learn, to contribute and to have fun.
By encouraging the development of scientific games with a research methodology , we want to convince the younger generation to invent new ways to learn through research and to promote citizen science.
We suggest that you work with at least one academic advisor and meet him/her regularly to keep on track with the best options.
If you have simulations that you want to gamify, come talk to the experts and the public. Your simulation could be the next foldit. You will compete for the prize of the public (simulation category).
If you want to advertise for your games dealing with education and/or research. It can be low/high tech, digital or analogic, but they must be fun and innovative.
You will compete for the prize of the public (professional category) during the final in Paris. The event will take place during a large public exhibition on video games in one of the biggest and most visited Science Museum.
