The Science4Pandemics gameaims to educate adolescents on pandemic prevention and management through an engaging digital platform. By playing the simulation game, students learn how to contain and solve a disease spread, find a treatment, develop a vaccine, and promote its adoption.
We are currently at the end of the development phase and looking for 250-300 young people aged 12-18 years old to participate in the playtesting of the game. This is a unique opportunity for students to learn through a game-based approach and develop their problem-solving skills.
To participate, students only need access to a computer or mobile device with an internet connection. During the online playtest sessions, students will play the simulation game in groups of up to 4. They will be given a goal to achieve and they will play together to achieve it. A member of the development team will be available to answer any questions or technical problems via a Discord channel. After playing the game, participants will complete a short online questionnaire to share their experiences and learnings. A Citizen Scientist Certificate Award will be given to participants who register and complete the questionnaires.
