Support STEM Gaming / Support FOLDIT's MacArthur Foundation grant appeal


The Foldit research team (read my earlier post) is striving to extend the Foldit application into a biochemistry tool for grade-schoolers [] in order to "develop specific technological and social scaffolds to support learning of multiple science proficiencies (e.g., interest in science, abstract
knowledge, scientific practices)."

They've entered the Digital Media Learning Competition [

as contenders for a Learning Design Labs award, underwritten by the MacArthur Foundation.

Judges of the 2M$ prizes will take into consideration public discourse regarding all submissions disseminated through a public commentary section [ ].Today is the last day that supporters will be able to register and log in for this purpose. Please do set aside a nanosecond to help the Foldit team while lending support for STEM gaming - in class and out, online and off.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
