Gamers Solve Scientific Problems

How did gamers use the computer gameFoldit to solve the protein folding mystery? It could be used to find a cure to AIDS virus in humans.

Who can participate in this problem solving and be a player in Foldit? Gamers that have no background in biochemistry to solve puzzels.

What can critical thinking do for science? Critical thinking is good because it can participate on the solution.

If you could solve a mystery through gaming for any kind of disease or illness in the world, what would it be? It will be cancer because little babies get it and they die and it is sad like they die when they are small they dont get to explor the wrold.

Mini Game

I made a mini game that is about a rabbit trying to get away from a wolf and trying to catch a carrot. I think it was kind of hard to make the mini game because it was my first time making a mini game, but it was easy at the same time because you just needed to copy and paste the code. The best part of making a mini game is when you are finish  because it could all sort of stuff  like collision detection and how many carrots you got like score keeping. The worst part was when you missed something in the actions and it did not work you needed to fix it and figure out what did you do wrong and it got me really frustrated.
