Students Play Widget Works

July 2, 2010
Students Play Widget Works Elementary school students play Widget Works at a Center for BioModular Multi-Scale Systems (CBM2) Summer Science Adventures Camp. Widget Works is a game that teaches science basics to elementary design students. Six engineering design students took on the assignment as part of an independent study course. They, along with a senior graphics design team, designed the game, developed three prototypes, employed the assistance of elementary school teachers to categorized questions, and tested it at a local elementary science class and at CBM2 summer programs. CBM2 is located at Louisiana State University (LSU). Recently funded by a three-year National Science Foundation EPSCoR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) grant (EPS 03-46411), CBM2 is a collaboration between researchers at LSU (Center for Advanced Microstructures and Devices (CAMD), Chemistry, Biology, and Mechanical Engineering), the LSU Health Science Center in New Orleans, Tulane Health Science Center and Xavier University. External partners include researchers at Cornell Medical College, Sloan Kettering Memorial Cancer Research Center and Baylor College of Medicine.
