Stempower is a project team at the Entertainment Technology Center’s Pittsburgh campus.

Charged with creating a STEM game for kids and based on research by Stella Vosniadou, we are exploring misconceptions elementary school aged children may have about the relationships of cycles between the earth, the moon, and the sun.

Our goal is to create an educational and entertaining Unity3D powered game for the web that teaches children the process of acquiring knowledge about our physical world.

The Factomo project is sponsored by General Motors. The goal this project, was to create a new interactive game experience through which players can create and operate the manufacturing factory of the future for General Motors.

We were worked with our client representatives, Robert Tilolve and Ronald Lesperance from the GM Research and Development Center to create new ways to visualize the manufacturing process in a virtual environment, which is both fun and informative.

We created a competitive environment in which teams can compete in categories such as plant efficiency and productivity to design their vision of future automobile production. Simultaneously, it feeded the choices the players make during this process back to GM R&D for consideration during actual facility design and construction.
