Albert and  Camille's Little Lille Adventure - Play the test version today!
As you are aware, VALIDATE has been developing educational computer games that we hope will give teachers and researchers unique resources for engaging young people about vaccinology. We have an early "pre-beta" (an early test version) of the game ready for our members to play before we launch a beta-test version to the public. We really hope that our members will play through the game and complete the feedback formwww.validate-network.org/little-lille-test
 
We would also encourage you to share it with any young people in your life, especially those who are in the target 11 - 14 years age group and ask them to complete the anonymous feedback form.
