“Serious Games for Climate Change” Student Showcase at the Qualcomm Institute

June 13 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On Thursday, June 13, the UC San Diego Qualcomm Institute (QI) hosts a free, public showcase of student-created extended reality games through the “Serious Games for Climate Change” internship.

Led by Neil Smith, QI associate research scientist and co-director of the Center for Cyber-Archaeology and Sustainability, “Serious Games” teaches students to develop and apply games to complex global problems such as climate change. Thursday’s event will showcase the culmination of student work on topics that include:

  • The Climate Games, a multi-player online game project funded by a CA CARES grant, focusing on areas impacted by climate change, such as the Salton Sea, San Joaquin, California Forests and Badu Islands Coral reef
  • ChemVR: Visualization of chemical reactions
  • Historic Metahumans: Generation of emotionally intelligent avatars of historical figures that can speak on subjects like our changing planet
  • Cognitive Cities: Creation of urban digital twins, including twins of the UC San Diego campus and Hollywood’s Vinyl District
  • Cyberarchwarehouse and the Smart Classroom: A sustainable collaborative immersive visualization tool for studying and learning about climatically endangered archaeological sites and how to preserve them

The event is open for walk-ins and student-led demos from 4-8 p.m.
