The video game OUCH! created by Pablo Rosenblatt and his team was awarded an important distinction among over 240 international productions, targeted for the young audiences. “It is with great pride that we receive this international recognition. I would like to share this award with the spectacular team that has made this video game possible. Ouch! will be launched in Chile shortly. Ouch! is the evidence of Chilean talent to innovate with new products for the scientific education inside and outside the classroom" declared the Director of the project. Pablo Rosenblatt
The game was developed by the Eureka Program of the Science & Life Foundation of the Faculty of Biological Sciences of the P. Universidad Católica de Chile. It is funded by the FONDEF-Conicyt program. The video game obtained the first prize in the Interactive Category in the contest organized by ComKids. This organization promotes the production of digital contents for children and teen agers.
Ouch! is aimed at students ranging from 9 to 12 years of age and will be launched in Chile shortly. The video game is a virtual environment devoted to physiology. It consists of an anatomy simulator that explains in detail the structures and organs of each one of the systems that are part of the curriculum of second grade cycle. It is, therefore, an important tool for teachers to use inside the classroom.
