4. Game (except 2009)

    •  Design an original game around a scientific concept, subject or principle.  Prepare an example (model) of your game, explain the rules and (if possible) let visitors play your game.  

For example, one year I had a student make an electricity game which was somewhat like the game "Life." In the game, which was played on a board like Monopoly or Sorry, players moved their pieces according to cards they selected at random from a deck.  The goal of the game, was to collect all the parts to make a circuit which had enough voltage and current to light all their lamps and motors.  The player who had the most lamps and motors powered by electricity was the winner of the game.
