Mission Hydro Science (MHS) is a science education game for middle school students.
“An adventure to colonize an alien earth like planet. Can you harness the natural water resources to help sustain you?”
MHS is also an opportunity to craft a powerful learning game that incorporates gaming, 3D virtualization, problem-solving context, social interactions, teaching and learning materials based on empirical learning progressions, opportunities for just-in-time instruction, scaffolding for argumentation, an empirically-grounded instructional model, and an analytics system
The MHS Project just received a large grant and will be continuing game development and school implementations!
