As part of Cromafest, which took place from 13th to 19th of February, the Mexico City Institute of Science and Technology (ICyTDF) presented the Finding 4D project.

Developed with the support of the Mexican Association for Innovation in Education Technology (AMITE) and the Laboratory for Innovation in Education Technology (LITE), Finding 4D is a game that aims to engage children and teenagers in technology and physics concepts. They play as Neutrino; the protagonist, who is a subatomic particle that loses his memory and has to try to reunite with his family through seven levels, representing the seven layers of the quantum universe.
