Social Science: Game Theory
Video games stopped being just for kids decades ago. At this night for grownups at the Science Museum of Minnesota, revelers will be able to celebrate and explore the world of gaming. University of Wisconsin-Madison professor Sean Dikkers will discuss how video games can be used to motivate and educate those who play, and Game Stop will be on hand with a sampling of some of the latest titles. Or, go old school and play a board game over cocktails from one of the bars stationed throughout the museum. The Minnesota Rollergirls will also be in attendance for a talk on the physics of contact sports, and Trivia Mafia will be testing folks' knowledge with the chance to win prizes. Be sure to stop by the photo booth to commemorate the evening. 21+. (Image by tsmall)
