Mad Science is a game and research platform in which players can create their own scientific experiments in the form of social scenarios. This is a work-in-progress project with a large interdisciplinary team of faculty and students at Northeastern University. An important offshoot of the Mad Science project is a set of custom scenarios designed to help self-represented parties represent themselves in civil court, in partnership with Connecticut Statewide Legal Services and funded by the Legal Services Corporation.
Project Website and Prototype Scenarios
The project website includes three playable prototype scenarios drawing from traditional psychology experiences.
