NSF Officer to Review Videogame Research

Dated Posted: Thu Aug 16 2007

A program officer from the National Science Foundation will review the Selene videogame research being conducted at the NASA-sponsored Classroom of the Future.

Dr. John Cherniavsky will meet with the Selene team during a visit Aug. 23 to the Center for Educational Technologies®. He will review the game design and data analysis techniques being used in Selene and also examine ways how the Selene research might be leveraged into NSF activities.

The lunar science online game was funded by NASA as part of an investigation into how students can best learn NASA science through videogames. Research began in May and is continuing. Cherniavsky will also present general sessions open to the Wheeling Jesuit University community on NSF funding and proposal writing during the visit.
