The relic in the hub consists of the fragment of a wall and floor and the slingshot used in the experiment. It features a partially ripped "Know your... Anti-Matter Risks" sticker that originally appeared in the Portal 2 game files as a Test Shaft 09 sign not used in-game. The relic's image used for the minigame's loading screen features the "The science of tomorrow™ starts today" poster instead.
Set in an Aperture Storage Annex, the player takes the part of a Core Calibration Trainee whose job is to calibrate Personality Cores in the Core Calibration Unit. The unit is a slingshot overlooking a storage area and near a conveyor belt, and with its height being adjustable for that of the player. The aim is to destroy all of the storage units by throwing cores into them, in a fashion similar to the video game Angry Birds. The amount of damage done is displayed in dollars on a monitor, and each time the damage threshold is reached, new cores are deployed. A global leaderboard, added in Appliance of Science update, is displayed above the conveyor belt.
During the course of the minigame, 32 different Cores can be placed into the slingshot. Each have specific personalities and lines. Several are voiced by actor and Rick and Morty's co-creator Justin Roiland.
