Description: Have you ever wondered how scientists developed strategies to limit the impact of the 2020 pandemic on human lives and health systems? Pandemic by Prisms is an immersive algebra learning game that builds lasting fluency with exponential functions and allows you to apply algebraic thinking to one of the most important problems today – the global pandemic. While it does not deal with the science behind pandemics, it is designed to equip you with foundational algebra skills to understand how to make informed decisions about a critical public health issue.

Review: ‘Pandemic by Prisms’ is an educational experience about how viruses and other infections increase in an exponential way. To be honest we have had enough of this information rammed down our throats for the last year that I don’t really want it in VR. But I can see this app being used in an educational setting such as a classroom, but to be honest there isn’t a lot here to justify the £5.79 asking price. The narration is OK I guess, but some of the graphics are basic, to say the least. Your average Steam user is not going to enjoy this at all, but someone might, especially if used in the right setting.
