FACTS

ABOUT SCIENCEATHOME

ScienceAtHome is a diverse team of scientists, game developers, designers and visual artists based at Aarhus University, Denmark. We create fun scientific games that produce real research results through play. At CODER (Center for Community Driven Research) we aim at merging theoretical and experimental research with online community efforts aiming to allow internet users to find solutions to complex scientific challenges encountered in quantum physics. The mission of our ScienceatHome project is to incorporate a large number of physics simulation models in order to: Allow all Internet users to get the chance to contribute to varied scientific challenges; Let experimental researchers worldwide simulate their own experiments; Give access to theoreticians and experimental researchers to gain new perspectives and innovative ideas through the use of simulation tools.
