Abstract: POSIT (developing Public Opinions on Science using Information Technology) is an augmented reality role-playing game for networked handheld computers. It is designed to improve engagement in science controversies and develop skills in evaluating evidence and forming arguments. Groups of high school or college students investigate a scenario based on a fictionalized science controversy. They gather evidence from virtual characters and items situated in real locations and compete to develop the most persuasive arguments. Preliminary results suggest that this is a promising approach and further design experiments are needed.
