Interactive Science Games

Games and gamification elements can be a practical tool for science communication, data analysis and to reach out to new groups. We create custom game apps for science projects and museum exhibtions to immerse visitors and participants and provide a modern learning experience.

Science Games can also be used to provide scientific data in a Citizen Science project in the form of video tagging or interactive game apps. Another well-working approach is to combine a running Citizen Science project on the SPOTTERON platform with an online game to increase data quaily by letting users play and re-classify data points of the observations.

As with all projects by SPOTTERON, we set a strong focus on design and usability to create a high quailty user experience and let the games be fun and run well on various devices.

Example: Crowdwater Citizen Science Game
