Gamer Solve Scientist Problems

How did gamers use the computer gameFoldit to solve the protein folding mystery? 
They used the computer to solve puzzles to try and help find the foldit.
Who can particpate in this problem solving and be a player in Foldit
Anyone and they don't have to have a background 
What can critical thinking do for science? 

If you could solve a mystery through gaming for any kind of disease or illness in the world, what would it be? 

I would make one on asthma because i have asthma and i know how it feels and i hate it u can hardly run a lot and u have near deaths sometimes.

Mini Game

  • What did you learn from your choice of games and genres to review?
  • I learned that they are making buildings to fast and we might not have alot of trees and grass if we keep building, buildings.
  • Name any game features that stood out to you, either because they were interesting or because they could be improved.
  • I think that in some games it looks fake i want to learn how to make it more real in flash.
  • Write down any questions you have about the game or genre you chose. You might answer them yourself later!
  • Would that game really sell? Is it a good topic to make a game on?

How old were you on September 11, 2001?
When September 11, happened I was 2.                                        When did you first learn about the attacks and who explained the events to you?
I think I learned about it when I was in 4th grade.
What kind of impact did these attacks have on your life or your parents lives?

It impacted violence because what they did to all the innocent people that was wrong and when i think of them doing it to my family it makes me want to hurt them because i cant live with out my family.
What was the issue with this game?
There wasn't really a social issue it was people trying to make money for something terrible that happened.
How do you feel about it?
I think its not right that the people use this terrible thing into a game they don't know how it feels it wasn't in there country or it wasn't any of there families.                                                       What is the problem with portraying on such an awful violent event through a video game?
It is wrong because that was a bad moment and people son's, daughter's  mom's,and dad's died in that place then they make a game out of it, that hurts people.                                                       How can you make sure that your web games tell the whole story or teach a lesson in an honorable way?

I wouldn't make a game out of it I think that is wrong i would make a little movie clip and say good things about it not bad.
