Games Supercharge Estuary Learning and Computer Science Skills
Three research reserves partnered with 140 college students on a gaming product to help people understand how their actions can help or hurt wetland habitats and inhabitants.
Work is well underway on an innovative product that will help people understand how their actions can help or hurt wetlands and the creatures that live there. Colorful, interactive computer games are being developed by 140 University of Delaware undergraduates, who are using this opportunity to polish their skills and contribute to an important cause. The effort is led by the Delaware National Estuarine Research Reserve, Florida’s Guana Tolomato Matanzas Reserve, and Texas’ Mission-Aransas Reserve.
Upon completion, the displays and games will be shared with other research reserve educators. Funding was made possible by the reserve’s Science Collaborative grant program. (2017)
