Agent Higgs




Help the Higgs Boson escape from scientists! It's particle physics in a way you've never experienced it before.

*Or, maybe you have? The game originally came out in 2012 -- and currently (2020) is unavailable while I work on a major update. It will be re-released on iOS, online, as well as *new* on Android and PC/Mac.

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.

To learn more about the details behind the game, take a peek at Higgs 101.

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!
