Battle for Cattle – a science game by BIOFACTION

MycoSynVac is a project that aims to provide new types of vaccines and thus new solutions to help tackle a major public health concern: antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic resistance is mainly due to an overuse and misuse of antibiotic.

In the framework of this project, an educational kit has been developed and is intended to help teachers organise an educational activity around these topics. The lesson is addressed to high school students aged 14-16 years old. The whole activity lasts from 2-3 hours and can be divided in different sessions.

Moreover, by playing the video game “Battle for Cattle”, students will be able to widen their knowledge while having fun. Battle for Cattle is a fun new strategy game that puts you in the shoes of a scientist trying to stop the deadly spread of Mycoplasma and antibiotic resistance.
