Materialise: a science quest – the game

17 October, 2018

The world’s energy use is increasing dramatically.

About 8% of the world’s electricity is used for computing, and that amount is growing rapidly, as we want our computers to do more for us.

We need to do two things:

  • create ways to generate more energy without damaging the environment
  • create computers that still can run amazing games and videos but use far less energy to be able to work properly

Materials scientists are already working on these challenges but they need your help to solve them.  Meet Michael Fuhrer, Amy Prieto, Anita Hill and Kit Cummins and help them find solutions to give us clean power and computers that are more powerful and use less energy. Are you ready to start the quest?
