RALEIGH – Most kids like to play video games, but what if they could also be learning at the same time?
Enter Plasma Games, a Raleigh-based EdTech company that has developed a 3D educational game, called Sci-Ops, to do just that.
“Our game fuses science curriculum with real-world applications and in-demand STEM careers inside engaging game play,” Hunter Moore, Plasma’s founder, told WRAL TechWire.
Sci-Ops is a skills-based game that teaches chemistry and physical science concepts through a turn-based strategy game like chess. It also integrates multiple modes of instruction, like videos, simulations, text and story-driven content.
Moore, who has a master’s of business from UNC-Chapel Hill, said he initially had the idea for Plasma Games based on his work experience at IBM, Boeing, Pratt & Whitney, and Sandia National Laboratories.
