Abstract: Drugs and the Brain: A Serious Game, a prototype museum exhibit, was designed to employ virtual
models of the brain into a video game format. It was done to create a fun and engaging way of
conveying knowledge and concepts about neuroscience, as well as the impact of methamphetamine
abuse on the brain. The purpose of this study is to evaluate this prototype exhibit that
promises to educate participants from various age, ethnicity, and gender backgrounds, and to
establish a stronger concept of drug abuse prevention among children. A quantitative methodology
using the pre- and post-experimental designs was conducted on 175 museum visitors. A series of
two-sample paired t-tests and subsequent ANOVAs were performed to examine the difference
between pre- and post-tests and to determine if there was a difference in the results in age, gender,
ethnicity, and race. Results showed that both the understanding and attitudes of the participants
toward the impact of methamphetamine abuse on the brain improved significantly (p < 0.01).
