For the Center for Game Science, autumn is a time of kicking off a great new season of website updates, announcements (including the triumphant return of the Washington State Algebra Challenge later this year), and enjoying the return of life to the University of Washington Campus. Welcome students and staff, returning and new!
We’ve made two significant overhauls so far you might enjoy, with a third underway to the website. This isn’t the last of our changes, but were noteworthy enough to mention while we’re working on the rest. (We also appreciate your patience and humor as we move things around a bit in the near future!) First, we have illuminated some of our related projects on our Projects page. If you want to know about arranging a field trip, or how we are related to the Algebra Challenges, this should be your first stop.
Next, to assist your reference needs, we’ve expanded our research section and gotten it up to date. Look for these research papers to also make an appearance on the various game pages as we continue to sort and classify them, and our media section to be more robust as we capture all the great places the Center and our projects have been mentioned.
Looking for the Center for Game Science in person? You’re in luck, as we will be attending a couple of events this fall. Mark your calendars for the following events.
- Pacific Science Center Life Sciences Research Center on November 7-9, 2014. Foldit scientists will be on hand to provide hands-on science and face-to-face time!
- Computing Open House, 1pm – 5pm on Saturday, December 6th, 2014. This fun event for middle/high school students and families will let you chat one on one with a couple of our developers and get some hands on time at our display!
