QuestaGame is a Canberra-based, now international, mobile gaming app that combines citizen science, biodiversity information economics and social gaming technologies to motivate and engage players to discover and learn about their local environments.
Its partners include the Atlas of Living Australia, the Office of Environment and Heritage NSW, the ACT Government, the Global Information Biodiversity Facility, and others.
In collaboration with the Centre for Biodiversity Analysis, QuestaGame has developed short-term internships to give students (and others) the opportunity to work with them.
These paid, initally part-time, internships are an excellent opportunity for recent graduates, Honours or PhD students to use their science knowledge that will, in turn, provide unique experience outside academia in a local, highly awarded, start-up company. Several previous ANU interns are now working for QuestaGame.
If you are interested, please get in touch with QuestaGame co-founder Mallika Robinson for more information on the internships and to introduce yourself - your interests, background, etc.
