Digital Howard Inc. is excited to announce the installation of Terracosm, an original interactive app-based sci-fi gaming experience built around fundamental STEM concepts, created by Digital Howard Inc., officially launched at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix, Arizona on June 10th, 2017.

Terracosm is an app-based mobile game for Android and iOS devices, propelled by a comic book style narrative, where the differing laws of science in neighboring alternate universes are starting to have a serious impact here on Earth.

Players locate Augmented and Virtual reality triggers called “TerraPorts” that are scattered throughout the science center, which allow them to virtually access these alternate universes and play 3D mixed (Augmented and Virtual) reality mini-games in order to complete the Mission, which has been built around three fundamental STEM concepts; flight & thermals, friction, and energy.

Using these incredible new technologies, players will be able to travel to alternate universes, fly through their landscapes, interact with their inhabitants, and escape perilously close calls, all without ever leaving the Arizona Science Center.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Arizona Science Center as one of the first centers in the US to make Terracosm available to their visitors.” said Jarrett Sherman, President, Digital Howard. “Our mission is to inspire this generation of kids to get interested in the STEM fields, using an immersive, narrative-driven game world, much like Star Trek in the 60’s inspired a generation to take a life‐long interest in the sciences. Terracosm achieves this by marrying incredible AR and VR mobile technology with STEM-based concepts, producing a package that children will love, available exclusively for science centers.”

Designed to complement the existing science center experience, Terracosm is an exciting gaming adventure, built to foster an interest and fascination in STEM subject matter in kids aged 6-12. Terracosm has been developed in tandem with the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto, who have been participating in a Beta testing phase of the project since August 2016.
