Games for Science and Engineering Ethics Education

We are working on an NSF grant (Award # 1338739) with an interdisciplinary team to develop games to teach science and engineering ethics to university students.

Soon, we will post a link to our game here. The game is designed to be played in classroom or workshop settings. All it requires are internet-enabled devices and at least four players. The game is a hybrid of face-to-face discussion with an online interface.
