Find Us At Your Library!

SIL Logo Bright ColorsToday, the Center for Game Science is pleased to announce we are available in even more places than ever before! Visitors to any one of the twenty-one libraries in the Sno-Isle Libraries System may now enjoy easier access to Refraction 2, Creature Capture, and Vampire Vision through their skillfully curated Kids gaming page on library computers (or even at home) – in fact, patrons can enjoy these three titles without ever needing to leave the site, helping make the site an “all in one stop” place for library visitor needs.

Thank you, Sno-Isle Libraries for helping support our mission of increasing accessibility to STEM gaming titles year-round!

Summertime Updates from CGS

It has been a great month here at the Center for Game Science. Feel free to check out our brand new page we created to help spotlight the games that are being created all this summer with BlockStudio and Dragon Architect at Seattle Public Library Summer of Learning events! Supporting our mission to help make STEM learning available year-round, Pend Oreille County Library District recently added us as a resource link in their kids section. Thanks, Pend Oreille staff!

We are also busy processing feedback from our latest Algebra Challenge event that ended on June 5th, the Washington State K-12 Story Problem Challenge. We would like to graciously thank everyone who put out the word and participated this spring, and even if you didn’t participate this time, we would enjoy hearing your thoughts to help us shape future challenges.

Foldit continues to be a timely news topic as a noted pioneer in crowdsourcing science efforts. Check out these stories:

In other news, Nanocrafter made an appearance at the Foundation of Digital Games 2015 conference this last week to present our recent paper “Nanocrafter: Design and Evaluation of a DNA Nanotechnology Game”. Congratulations to the Nanocrafter team!

As we head into July, we look forward to meeting our annual group of summer visitors, continued testing on Riddle Books, and staying cool. Be sure you are following us on all of our channels to get the latest!
