Hi Score Science

Hi Score Science is a free, ad-free science quiz game in Spanish and English, with versions in French and Basque, for mobile devices,       Play Store and Apple Store and on PC, Mac and Linux (www.HiScoreScience.org) whose aim is to increase the scientific culture of its users in a fun way, bringing closer the science we live with every day.

Hi Score Science is not only a game of questions and answers about science, but also allows us to delve into science and its advances through two research centres, the Instituto de Nanociencia y Materiales de Aragón (INMA) and the Instituto de Síntesis Química y Catálisis Homogénea (ISQCH), -both joint centres of the CSIC and the University of Zaragoza-. For this reason, and since it is an outreach project developed between two research centres, the game includes explanations of the scientific reality that lies behind each of the answers, seeking to encourage users’ curiosity about science.

Compete and play with Hi Score Science

We want users to feel part of the project, so users are encouraged to collaborate in the development of the scientific content of the game and are rewarded for it.
Youth competition: Secondary school, high school and vocational training students.
Senior competition: Over 18s
Junior competition: 5th and 6th year primary school students

Prove that you are the best Scientist Gamer and play in absolute National Online League

Prove that you are the best Scientific Gamer and play in the Absolute National Online League.

The league is open to users of all ages and locations in Spain.
The league has a monthly online game from September to June in which users answer questions such as: Why doesn’t the Moon fall towards the Earth? Why does the sun turn red at sunset on clear days? Or the skin of which fruit is flammable?

Among the top finishers from past editions are 12 and 13 year old girls, high school students, secondary school teachers and university staff.


Themed gymkhanas – arcade machines

The project also has thematic gymkhanas (science in general, SDGs and women scientists), which will be used in different Spanish locations from large cities to villages with few inhabitants and which, thanks to their versatile and easily adaptable design, can be requested for use in any town or educational centre.

Finally, there is also a recreational machine, like a machine from the 80’s, which facilitates its installation for exhibitions in museums and science houses, which will circulate in several Spanish museums and which can also be requested for its use.
