Tietronix Software makes its debut on the Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) 2.0: Games for Learning Playlist. The recently released playlist features short videos of games funded by 12 different SBIR programs across agencies including the Department of Education, National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, the Department of Agriculture, and the Department of Transportation.
Tietronix has two games highlighted on the playlist:
The “Code of Aegis” game combines the highly interactive nature of gaming with the storytelling power of graphic novel art to produce an engaging educational experience that will expose 6th – 8th grade students to computer science concepts, programming skills, and robotics education. The project is funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) through the Small Business Innovative Research program (SBIR).
The Serious Game for Energy Science (SGES), known as “Powered by Science”, uses the engagement of an interactive computer-based game to engage students in exploration of energy science, energy production, and environmental impact. Students learn problem-solving and critical thinking as they apply their knowledge in a single-play turn-based progression through multiple levels of learning about energy. This Phase 1 prototype was a National Science Foundation funded STTR.
Tietronix develops virtual environment games of all types to introduce students to knowledge skills in math, science, technology, and more. Tietronix will showcase these two games at the ED Games Expo on December 9, 2015 in Washington, DC.
