CGS Fall Update

KBT_6151“By all these lovely tokens September days are here, with summer’s best of weather – and autumn’s best of cheer.” – Helen Hunt Jackson

With the return of fall just around the corner, it’s time to take a look at what’s going on now and what’s coming up in the busy days ahead as students return to campus.

Recently, we participated in the University of Washington Foundation board fall meeting by demonstrating new versions of Treefrog Treasure and Foldit currently in development. You can read a write up of the event over at the CSE blog.

In game news, we are conducting our annual Foldit Demographic Survey and also our first-ever Nanocrafter Demographic Survey, both available until October 8. Today, we also discovered this charming new ten minute video on YouTube taking players through some of the earliest levels of Nanocrafter. Take a peek and see how far you can go after that by logging in to the game today.

It has been a while since we have been out and about in the community. If you’ve missed us too, you’re in luck, as we will be attending a couple of events later this year. Be sure to your calendars for November! We’ll be back again at the ninth annual Pacific Science Center Life Sciences Research Center on November 6-8, 2015. Foldit scientists will be on hand to provide hands-on science and face-to-face time. This event is one of our favorites in our local community, and is rare opportunity to speak directly with lab scientists one on one. We can’t wait to see you there.

We would also love to visit with school groups this fall and winter to help us test features we are developing for our products. Several groups have already made arrangements, but there’s still enough room on the calendar! Contact our general email or our Community Manager directly to get started.

Our search continues for a Digital Learning Curriculum Specialist to coordinate and help create a set of modular blended instructional materials for K-12 math from a brand new perspective. Apply through the UW Hires site today!
