Moon Adventure Game Summative Evaluation

July 1, 2023 | Media and Technology, Public Programs

This report is the summative evaluation of Moon Adventure Game. The Moon Adventure Game is a challenge-based immersive game, inspired by “escape room” experiences, which asks visitors to take on activities to help them think about what people might need to live and work on the Moon. Creation of the game was a collaborative effort between Arizona Science Center (ASC) and National Informal STEM Education Network (NISE Network) partners from Arizona State University (ASU), the Science Museum of Minnesota (SMM), the Museum of Life and Science, Children’s Creativity Museum, Sciencenter, and the Museum of Science, Boston (MOS). The game is designed for three to six players and is intended to be played live with support from a facilitator. The 25-minute gameplay involves five challenges that incorporate scientific concepts connected to lunar exploration, as well as introduction and closing elements. The game was distributed to 350 NISE Network partner organizations across the US in the December 2020. Summative evaluation of the game focused on both public and professional audiences.
