What is a Scientific Game Jam?

The Scientific Game Jam is a scientific video game creation event.
Compared to a classic game jam, it has the particularity of requiring participants to create a video game around the research theme of a young researcher, doctoral student or young doctor.

It is open to all science fields, from geology to informatics, including the physics of materials and literature. These games are then playable for free online and presented at some events such as festivals.
