30. LTG and the Royal Society

During the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition last week over a thousand children, teachers, scientists, and curious adults built models of epidemics using a software service developed by the Learning Technologies Group in conjunction with the Zoology Department. Visitors turned their models into computer games where the player can make various public health interventions to try to stop the epidemic. Over 1100 games were made during the ten day exhibition at the Royal Festival Hall. And since the exhibit closed web visitors have created an additional 130 games in less than a week.

Queen Elizabeth came within ten feet of the OUCS stand but sadly did not stop by to build a epidemic game.
