  • Games are a tool…
    You
    …are responsible for how they are used.
  • How can“games” help
    the human condition?
  • “The integration of human visual problem-solving and strategy development capabilities with traditional computational algorithms through interactive multiplayer games is a powerful new approach to solving computationally-limited scientific problems.”
    • Interactive learning potential
    • Leveraging the crowds in games and simulations
    • Competition awards successful “players”
    • Creates repeat customers hungry for NOAA’s data
