Please join Melanie Stegman @ Fab Lab DC for a special evening where you can see data supporting the use video games in teaching cellular immunology. Come hear about the development of Immune Defense, a game in which you manage the white blood cells that are fighting off E. coli, Listeria, Pneumocci and Chicken Pox... and that's only the beginning! Find out how to make molecular science easy and fun. Join a discussion of the use of game play and game design in science teaching. Then we'll turn to a broader use of cutting edge learning games! Melanie Stegman, Ph.D., Director, Learning Technologies Program, Federation of American Scientists is the guiding force behind the program’s focus on the innovative use of technology to present science to students and the public. Stegman is funded by NIAID and the ESAF.
