Robitopia wins at the Digital Communication Awards 2022

Robitopia is a game developed as part of a research project that dealt with the question of how to increase STEM interest among children.

After several national awards, Robitopia has won Bronze in the category Content & Game at the Digital Communication Awards 2022. The game was developed as part of a research project, commissioned by the B&C private foundation and the Federation of Austrian Industries.

The research project examined individual-level determinants of interest in STEM and analyzed whether a digital web application for elementary-school children can increase children’s interest in STEM with a specific focus on narrowing the gender gap. Coupling a randomized-controlled trial with experimental lab and survey data, the project team analyzed the effect of the digital intervention and shed light on the mechanisms.
