Double Victory for Meister Cody

Double Victory for Meister Cody

Under the motto "Playing for Health," Meister Cody – Talasia scoops up two awards

On the search for digital games that entertain and promote health at the same time, Witten/Herdecke University chose a winner on 24 November. Meister Cody's clever training concept, which helps children with math weakness and dyscalculia, was chosen from over 40 games and won the "Wittener Award for Health Visionary."

Main criteria

According to the organizers, decisive for the jurors who judge the submitted games from a scientific, health and economic perspective were three essential criteria: Innovation, health relevance and consistency of the overall concept. "The jury was impressed by the app's success. Many children have already been able to improve their computational skills through 'Meister Cody,' says an article of WAZ from 25 November.

Another Success – The Audience Award

As part of the award ceremony, all participants also had the opportunity to have their concept assessed by an independent audience. For this purpose, all of the games were set up and tried out in the main auditorium. Meister Cody was also able to impress here and win the coveted audience award.
