It comes as no surprise that computer games draw from research in many fields, with all the fancy math, algorithms, and simulations running behind the curtains. But what about the other way? Can games return the favor and push science forward? Well, of course they can. There are in fact multiple ways how that happens. In this workshop we are going to quickly run through some of the examples of games that help science and then try to brainstorm our own designs for games that could help this cause.

Intended audience: 
Everybody interested in science and games. Those with background in serious games are probably not going to learn much new, but are welcome to come and share their insights.

No computer work will be involved in this workshop. Interest in games, science, and talking to other people is recommended :)
