MISSION CRITICAL......








SECURING THE PIPELINE....

               

STEM CAREERS......























































































































General Information:  The purpose of the Biology/Chemistry/Math Video Gaming Competition is to encourage students to form study groups to heighten their interest and get a better understanding of the different career opportunities in science and math to pursue a career in one of the relevant STEM fields.


Program:  Twenty teams of three members will be tested on five Biology/Chemistry/Math Video Games.  The games will be based on middle school curriculum.  Each team will be provided with an overview of the game to prepare them to compete in the competition.


Training Workshops: All workshops are held on Saturdays -  October - January (9am-12 pm) at Prince George's Community College in Largo, Maryland 20774

Competition Event:   Each team will have 30 minutes to score as high as possible on each of the games.

Competition Video Game:  Games will be available February 1, 2018



     -  Chemistry Quest
        A simple introduction to inorganic chemistry, anyone can pick up "Chemistry  Quest" and start mixing elements to create compounds.  When players create
        a 
new compound, they are rewarded with real-world information about what they've  made. Players will learn about basic principles of chemistry, including
        oxidation numbers and ionic bonding.


     -  Edaphos 

        Edaphology is the branch of biology concerned with the effects of living organisms on soil conditions. In "Edaphos", players start with barren lifeless dirt
        and transform it into a  thriving ecosystem.  Players will learn about problem-solving and 
sustainable
ecosystems.
 

    -  The Immunity Factor

       A seemingly simple math game set in the world of immunology, "The Immunity Factor" challenges students to get the most right answers as quickly as
       possible. This game keeps students on their toes, rewarding quick and accurate decisions.


    -  Theory Into Practice

        Developed with chemistry professor Nadene Houser-Archield, "Theory Into Practice" is a game about qualitative analysis, the scientific process
        of 
performing experiments to identify unknown samples.  This game teaches critical thinking and deductive
reasoning.  


    -  Go Nuclear

        This game is an introduction to nuclear chemistry, which deals with protons, neutrons, and electrons.  Players are given information about the mass and 
        charge of the three subatomic of the three subatomic particles and then asked to identify various atoms.  Students will learn about physics, chemistry, and
         multiple methods of solving the problem. 
   


Prizes: All member of the winning team will receive the following:

1st Place:    Each member of the team will receive a $100 Gift Card

-  2nd Place: Each member of the team will receive a  $50 Gift Card
