Do you believe that games can be more than just a bit of fun? Is designing games your thing? Do you think games can contribute to the understanding of science? If this sounds like you, we’d love to see you at the Persuasive Games Competition!
(Please print out the PDF version of this poster if you would like to advertise the event in your institution).
The CHI+MED project (which involves researchers from Queen Mary University, City University, Swansea University and UCL) invites teams of students to design a game that will be made freely available on errordiary.org as part of the Discovery Zone. Prizes will be awarded at the final showcase, including £1000 for first place, £500 for runner up and £500 for the people’s choice. The event is only open to students (at any level of higher education, from any institution, and in any area) so student ID will be required. Please check out the details on the competition website to find out more. Get started by registering here for our kick-off event, which will be taking place at UCL on Feb 1st 2014. At least one member of each team must have attended the kick-off to take part in the competition.
