In our last Serious Games Meetup of the 2017-2018 year, we’ll look at some things related to science education, including simple 3D physics development in Unity, and Kerbal Space Program, a humorous but sophisticated spaceflight mechanics simulator.
Serious Games can serve a wide variety of purposes: educational, scientific simulation, healthcare, therapy, personnel training, emergency management, city planning and politics. The Serious Games Meetup is sponsored by the Digital Humanities Group. Here, faculty, staff and students explore learning theories and game design, and conduct workshops where participants explore digital and analog game use and creation. And yes, we play some games, too!
