Title: Morbus Delirium
Url: https://www.centredessciencesdemontreal.com/jeux-experiences/morbusdel...
Publisher: Virtual Museum of Canada
Description: Health and science educators may be interested in Morbus Delirium, an interactive educational game created by the Montreal Science Centre and the Virtual Museum of Canada. In this game, young learners explore epidemiology by confronting a mysterious pathogen impacting their community. To do so, learners take on the role of a biologist working at the Montreal Science Centre to create a pair of "augmented reality biotech glasses" that has the ability to spot microorganisms. Players have the option of exploring this game in two different modes. The easy mode is designed for "young scientists who have a basic knowledge of biology for viruses, DNA, and anatomy," while hard mode is designed for players "who have a very advanced scientific knowledge including general understanding of genes, chromosomes, living cells, and disease." As players advance in this game, they travel back in time to meet Frederick Montizambert, a physician who worked at the quarantine station at Grosse Isle in the late nineteenth century. This educational game may especially be of interest to educators who work in out-of-school contexts as well as parents and caregivers.
