Event Details

Gamers, don’t miss this chance to peek behind the scenes! Science on the Screen, geared for middle and high school students, creatively pairs cutting-edge science presented by leading science and technology experts with classic science fiction films. The series reveals the science of everyday living, explores where science and art connect, and inspires students to explore the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). Dive in to the real-life impact of gaming with game developer Jane McGonigal, author of Reality is Broken and the creator of SuperBetter, a game that has helped nearly half a million players tackle real-life health and wellness challenges. She explains the technology of video game development behind the 1983 classic WarGames (PG) starring Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy.

Jane McGonigal, PhD is a world-renowned designer of alternate reality games — or, games that are designed to improve real lives and solve real problems. She has created and deployed award-winning games, sports and secret missions in more than thirty countries on six continents, for partners such as the American Heart Association, the International Olympics Committee, the World Bank Institute and the New York Public Library. She specializes in games that challenge players to tackle real-world problems such as poverty, hunger and climate change, through planetary-scale collaboration. Her best-known work includes EVOKE, Superstruct, World Without Oil, Cruel 2 B Kind, Find the Future and The Lost Ring. These games have been featured in the New York Times, Wired and the Economist, and on MTV, CNN and NPR.

Film run time is 114 minutes.
