About Sci-Ops: Global Defense

Start Menu

An alien race called "The Hive" has invaded Planet Earth and taken over critical parts of the energy infrastructure -- creating pollution and damaging ecosystems in the process. Humanity's best chance for survival is an elite group of scientists and engineers known as scientific operatives, or "Sci-Ops",  who use their combined scientific knowledge to fight back against The Hive and fix the environment.


Join the ranks of Sci-Ops to learn science and save the planet!

By playing the educational game, players will learn curriculum from:

  • physical science courses, like chemistry and physics,
  • introductory engineering courses, and
  • scientific method, sampling and statistics, all framed within
  • social context of climate change and other grand challenges.

The educational game is built from NGSS and state standards. It was designed to focus on core concepts, crosscut subjects and scale with users. And it embeds each within a broader narrative to add meaning to each lesson.

Curriculum supplement
aligned to NGSS and
state science standards

Designed to integrated with
your science curriculum


The educational game was designed with science teachers, for science teachers. This ensures that the educational game integrates with:

  • your syllabus,
  • your curriculum, and
  • your classroom activities and labs,

    in order to work for your students!

The educational game can be used to spark discussion, introduce new concepts, enrich the lesson with more real world context, test understanding or substitute a lab experiment. It is flexible and will supplement your class as you want and need it.

In order to progress in the game, players will rescue scientists and engineers who share knowledge of useful scientific principles that help defeat The Hive. Each concept is embedded in a real world application that has in-game effects.

Players also learn about the backgrounds and careers of the scientists and engineers that they rescue. As a result, students are exposed to a range of exciting and in-demand STEM professions and areas of expertise, like laser scientists, robotics expertise, aeronautical engineers, telecommunications specialists and more!

applications and technologies,

as well as exciting STEM careers

Unprecedented learning efficacy

Our initial prototype demonstrated that the educational game can effectively teach high school-level science curriculum to 8- to 18-year olds with 99.9% confidence (N=35).

In addition, the prototype demonstrated that students could learn concepts at a rate that would allow them to cover an entire year-long science course in only 16-hours.

Students loved the prototype. 85% of students liked or loved the game, including 91% of female students, with no negative feedback.

Students will love our commercial release even more! Since the prototype, game play has been expanded, new features have been added, and a much more rich and immersive experience has been created.

At Plasma Games, we believe in data-driven innovation. The upcoming play testing of the Beta version of the game will validate the efficacy of our innovative learning platform. Please stay tuned.

Also, please sign up to be a part of the future of education!
