New Mexico natural history museum launches online game to grow algae for biodiesel

August 6, 2018 |

In New Mexico, the state’s Museum of Natural History and Science has launched an online exhibition called Bio-AI that allows users to grow an algae crop—or fail and lose the crop—using an online game “Growing Green Goop” as a way to increase awareness about algae R&D in the state. As the game’s intro says, “There are a lot of ways to grow algae, and lots of different types of algae to grow. The challenge is to make it cheap to grow algae so that it will cost less than other types of fuel.”
