Osy Osmosis

Osy Osmosis is a fun game for all ages where you must help Osy stay safe as she navigates through her world collecting stars. You can control where Osy goes by touch or by tilt, but be careful, as you progress, more dangers will present themselves. To help Osy, you will use osmosis to keep her in balance with the world around her.

In this new version, Osy is the first game to show the key elements of osmosis as you play, namely bound and free water molecules. The textbooks get osmosis wrong - Osy gets it right!

Osy was developed by a group of researchers, educators, and developers at the University of Georgia (UGA), with support from the National Institute of Health (NIH) Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA), The Georgia Research Alliance VentureLab, and UGA. IS3D LLC was formed by members of this group to design and develop future education simulations and games. All profits from Osy will go towards the creation of other educational games and interactive software.

I am interested in the usefulness and effectiveness of games in the classroom as a supplemental resource to reinforce concepts, inspire creativity and foster higher-level thinking.

The science content is there to help young children, no older than middle school, learn about osmosis. However, I worry that even they will not find the game very exciting.
