Name Recognition. We will create a Wordle (http://www.wordle.net/) of all contributors’ names, in which the font size of your name will be proportional to the dollar amount contributed to the project. The final Wordle will be a permanent part of the credits in our Kinect Quake Catcher Game and will also be available for download from our website in 2012.
We will send you a laminated (size approximately: 2” x 6”) vinyl indoor/outdoor scuff resistant sticker of our Quake Catcher Network logo. All stickers will be mailed by February 2012.
You can pick the design, shape and color of a pair of shoes in our game-play used in the 'jump' mini-game. Because of copyright, you must either describe your shoe preference in words, and our cartoonist will draw them or you can supply a non-copyright version of the shoe image of your choosing.
You can name a cartoon character in our game-play (names within reason of course; children will be playing this game).
An original cartoon drawing will be created just for you. It will be signed by the artist for you and emailed to you so you can print out multiple copies if you like!
Via Skype, one of our resident Quake Catcher Network seismologists will be available for a 1-hour seismology lecture and question/answer session (appropriate for 2nd grade up to undergraduate).
In February of 2012 we will host a 2-hour invitation-only demonstration of our Kinect Quake Catcher Game at the Birch Aquarium at Scripps in the San Diego region (http://aquarium.ucsd.edu). Designed as a come-and-play venue, participants are encouraged to drop in at any time to enjoy and test the Kinect Quake Catcher Game. Included in this venue is an introductory overview of the project given by a Scripps seismologist, who will be available to answer questions during the full 2-hour event.
A behind the scenes visit to our lab at Scripps Institution of Oceanography for ½ hour during one of our project development sessions (M/W/F only). Visitors will receive a free QCN sensor.
We will demo our Kinect Quake Catcher Game at the learning center (i.e., school, museum or library) of your choice within the San Diego region. If you are interested in this reward, before donating, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss if your venue qualifies for this prize. Small print: The winners are in charge of all aspects of hosting the event (i.e., reserving the event location, inviting participants, parking, etc). Our group will supply the game-play fun for up to 2 hours.
