Join Chris Styles in his first SciComm Stories interview! This week Chris is talking with Dr Melanie Stegman. While working in a Tuberculosis research laboratory as a biochemist, Melanie was also dreaming of finding new ways to connect people with the wonders of biochemistry. She realised there was a link between science and solving puzzles, such as the similarity between discovering answers within science and finding the right path in the adventure video games she enjoyed as a child. This is the untapped potential of science education through video games, not just gamifying lesson plans but creating a truly immersive experience. Learn how Melanie made the move from the lab to creating educational video games with her Molecular Jig Games.
