  • Results From Game Design Challenge: Safety First!

    - Danny Cowan
  •  From the crossing guard by your local elementary school to the yellow hard hats worn on construction sites, public safety is a recognizable and important part of our day-to-day lives.

    Traditionally, public safety education is delivered via signage, short films, and public service campaigns, but video games can also present a fun and engaging way to teach players valuable lessons about safety.

    Some recent examples include Google's Interland, which teaches kids the basics of online safety through a browser-based game, and the CDC's Solve The Outbreak, which informs players of real-world health risks through fictional epidemic scenarios.

    For Game Career Guide's latest Game Design Challenge, our readers designed educational games about public safety. Here are our top picks!
