Level Up:Open now through August 20!
The wait is over! Level Up triumphantly returns to Mi-Sci with mind-blowing new additions to the experience. Immerse yourself in a world where robotics, programming, and motion-activated adventures take you on an extraordinary journey of problem-solving and skill-honing. Open now through August 20!
Video Games – Research indicates action gamers are better skilled at using models to solve problems outside of games. In Portal 2 for the Xbox, players must come up with a question, design experiments, and implement solutions while applying advanced physics. Multiplayer modes allow players to collaboratively problem-solve to work toward a collective win against the game.
Analog Games – Board games teach hands-on STEM skills without the need for a tech component and appeals to a wide age range. Large-scale games in Level Up will allow players to learn design and game mechanics.
Virtual Reality – Computer-generated simulations of a three-dimensional image or environment puts you at the center of activity in a seemingly real or physical way using special electronic equipment such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors.
Arcade Games – The final zone will incorporate a dedicated space for guests to play classic arcade games plus winning games from the Games for Change (G4C) student challenge competition and games in a virtual playground with floor and ceiling projection where students use their body as the game controller.
The Ames Room – A special room designed to challenge your perceptions of reality by removing all the visual cues we usually use to determine an object’s size. This effect causes objects and people in a seemingly ordinary room shrink or grow depending on their position in the room. When we look at someone inside an Ames Room, our brains are fooled into thinking that the room is a regular square; in reality, the room is trapezoidal, with one corner farther away than the others. Mi-Sci’s Ames Room will also feature a selfie station for those who want to share their experience.
