Mission Nano


Mission: Nano consists of a series of four challenges to diagnose and treat a bone injury utilizing medical nanotechnology. Players can choose a “story mode” where they lead the doctor to complete all four challenges or a “practice mode” to complete the four challenges as quickly as possible. 

The Houston Methodist Research Institute and Rice University's Center for Technology in Teaching and Learning (CTTL) in Houston, TX partnered to develop a nanotechnology-based multimedia game app. The product, Mission: Nano, educates players about uses of nanotechnology in medicine and inspires them to consider careers in the STEM sectors.

Developed by the Houston Methodist Research Institute and Rice University's Center for Technology in Teaching and Learning (CTTL) in Houston, TX. Supported with a mini-grant from the Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network, and supported by the National Science Foundation under Award Numbers 0532536 and 0940143.
