Roblox: become a Fisabio researcher
The Fisabio Foundation is opening the doors to its public health research center in the virtual universe of Roblox, one of the multi-player platforms most used by children and teens.
With the objective of bringing science to the youngest ones in a didactic and fun manner, the game recreates the Fisabio building and invites you to tour its facilities, and learn about the activities that are being carried out in its laboratories.
For this edition of MEDNIGHT, the participants will not only be able to access FISABIO’s genomics and sequencing laboratories, this visit will also be extended to the Food Safety and Biobank IBSP laboratories.
In addition, via this ROBLOX link, you can access two mini-games: one about how to carry out a PCR test where the participants can move between the DNA chains and observe the process from inside a test tube, as if they were the size of polymerase; and another mini-game in which, from the Food Safety laboratory, the participants will learn how the presence of certain contaminants in foods that are typical of the Mediterranean diet is studied.
