GALaQSci: Gaming Meets Quantum Technologies

Gamified and AI-assisted Learning for Quantum Technologies

In the GALaQSci project, we bring the world of quantum technologies right into your hands! A team of professional game developers, quantum scientists, and physics educators are working closely together to create a smartphone game, in which the player needs to solve quantum technology riddles by effectively using features of quantum objects. Our goal is to make the abstract and counterintuitive concepts of quantum technologies accessible and understandable to society through an immersive and educational experience.

GALaQSci is the first AI-based quantum game that provides a broad user base through a smartphone app and, through the AR version, it offers an additional haptic, personalized access for schools, universities, museums, and science centers.

What's it about?

GALaQSci is more than just a game; it is an immersive journey into the world of second-generation quantum technologies. The game unfolds against the backdrop of a destroyed research station. Your mission? Reconstruct destroyed quantum technology experiments and delve deep into the fascinating world of quantum physics.

Who is it for?

Our game is designed for students, teachers, and anyone fascinated by quantum technologies. No prior knowledge is required, making it accessible to everyone, for free.

How does it work?

The game is designed for smartphones, and offers an interactive, playful, and personalized experience. You have the opportunity to cooperate with or compete against an Artificial Intelligence (AI) character, adding extra excitement to your quantum journey. The Augmented Reality (AR) version it will offer additional haptics, personalized access for schools, universities, museums, and science centers.

What can you learn?

GALaQSci covers a broad range of topics, from constructing a quantum sensor to data encryption with quantum cryptography and data processing through a quantum computer. It is an entertaining and engaging way to explore the fundamental laws of quantum physics and their technological applications.
