Board game developed by scientists is winning plaudits for inspiring students to consider STEM careers

A team of scientists and a games specialist have designed “Diamond: The Game,” a board game developed to give secondary school students a chance to explore a broad range of STEM scientific careers and subjects. This is achieved through firsthand experience of the different aspects of working in scientific research and life as a scientist and shows how research at a facility like Diamond underpins successful science. Their paper, “Diamond: The Game—a board game for secondary school students promoting scientific careers and experiences” will be published in the journal Research for All on 30 June 2022.
