Wellcome Trust Workshop: How Do You Make Science, Play? #developconf
Any fellow developers going to Brighton who have an interest in science and/or are interesting in finding out about the various pots of funding The Wellcome Trust have available, then I recommend singing up to the workshop below. The line-up is going to be very interesting – neurologists, a cell biologist and a cardiologist so far. How would you game biology?
Wellcome Trust Workshop: How Do You Make Science, Play?
Date: Thursday 12 July 2012, 14:00 – 16:00 at Develop, Brighton
From Deus Ex to Portal, science has inspired a vast array of successful games and sometimes in quite unexpected ways. This hands-on workshop explores how contemporary science can be mined for compelling ideas by games developers, going from concept to design. Whether as the inspiration for a game or for content supporting a bigger game, this workshop will see you collaborating with top scientists from across the country to develop novel ideas.
The session includes a presentation with Preloaded as they explain how a close collaboration between games makers and content specialists resulted in their latest game, Axon. There will also be a chance to find out how you can access the Wellcome Trust’s funding streams to develop science-inspired gaming ideas further.
Please note there is limited space available for this session. If you would like to attend, please email Develop@wellcome.ac.uk, with subject heading ‘WORKSHOP’.
