Navigate Scenario: GameScapes for Nutrition receives Silver Medal at the 2014 International Serious Play Awards
The Serious Play Awards honor outstanding games that deliver a high quality of engagement and measurable training or learning opportunities.

Navigate Scenario: GameScapes for Nutrition are “day-in-the-life” learning simulations that immerse students in photo-realistic settings with interactive video-characters and engaging story lines.  In this GameScape, students must work to gather knowledge—all mapped to key course learning objectives—through exploration, research, and interviews. Creativity, quick thinking, and deductive reasoning play a key role in students’ ability to successfully analyze the situation, and a game-like point system will both measure performance and provide a sense of competition.
