The Nano-Adventures of Gold and Silver is an iOS game intended for young students to learn about nanoscience and the benefits and harms of various nanoparticles in the environment, originally created by the Center for Environmental Nanoscience and Risk. This project exists as the first iteration of a game about two superheroes, Nano-Gold and Nano-Silver, who invite players along as they use their powers to deal with different scenarios. Over the course of a year, the game was designed, developed, and tested; the resulting application includes user authentication capabilities, an origin story detailing the Nano-Girls narrative, and a complete level, including a lesson, tutorial, mini-game, and quiz.
