Event Details

The Science Game Jam pairs scientists from the Field Museum with Game Developers in the Chicago area to create games about SCIENCE!

The researchers will briefly describe the area of their expertise, then teams of game developers will form and choose a scientist to work with.

Then it's game on!  Teams have 48 hours to create a game about their scientist's field and present it to their peers, and to judges who will award prizes to the top teams!

P.S. The entire 48-hour experience will be catered, so everyone wins, really :)
