Brief Synopses

(Expose Biology to a wider audience) Introducing genetics to middle school-aged children to hopefully spark their interest in science.

My Fuzzy Friends is a web browser game whose primary goal is to educate children from around 5th-8th grade on genetics and hopefully encourage girls and minorities especially to continue on in genetics and biology-related fields. This is accomplished by a "build your own creature" game that helps to develop an understanding of basic Mendelian genetics and an introduction to more complex gene-gene interactions through entertaining and engaging graphics.
