Sebastian Alvarado

Yesterday, Sebastian Alvarado came to speak to our class about his work that brings both biology and computer science together to make realistic video games and movies, such as Captain America.

He advises companies such as Marvel on scientific topics to help make their movies more realistic, by explaining the science behind transformations of super heroes/characters.


From this…


…to this!

His newest idea, a game that teaches people about cells (and subtly about cancer), will be released in the next year or two, and it seems very interesting because the game simultaneously teaches as well as engages the user, which is something that is very hard to do these days.

Thank you  Sebastian Alvarado for coming to speak to our class, and also showing us your awesome magic tricks!
