Agent Higgs: Chapter 1

Agent Higgs: Chapter 1

Agent Higgs is on the run! After eluding scientists for years, the Higgs particle is about to face his toughest challenge: a multibillion dollar particle accelerator. A truly fearsome weapon, it is almost sure to reveal him to the world. Agent Higgs needs your help!

This first, online chapter contains 25 levels -- the full game, on iPhone, has 140 levels, all three generations of matter, and a whole lot more physics. Particle decays, neutrino oscillations, you name it. Check out the iPhone game here.

The Science

The building blocks of this game are the real fundamental particles of our universe. All three generations of matter, from electrons to tau particles. And they even behave like they should - from attraction and repulsion, to neutrino oscillation and particle decay.

In Chapter 1, Higgs has to use the first generation leptons (aka electrons and electron neutrinos) to solve increasingly challenging puzzles. Deal with electromagnetism and antimatter. Can you outwit the scientists and hide Agent Higgs?

For Teachers

Are you a teacher looking for resources? Great! Unfortunately, I haven't created any teacher tools for this game yet, but if you do end up using the game as part of a classroom activity, I'd love to hear about it!
