About Our Games

Greenman and the Global Climate Change – Estimated Duration: 12 minutes

In this game you are the superhero, “Greenman,” and you have been charged with saving the Earth. The dangerous greenhouse effect is on its way and you must use Dr. Knowell’s lasers to save us all. Jump from platform to platform to collect objects while avoiding the rising waters. You have to know the difference between what will help us and what will make the greenhouse effect worse! Can you save us all? Part of the Global Climate Change learning objective.

The Mayor – Estimated Duration: 10 minutes

What would you do if you were mayor and your city was contributing to the greenhouse effect? That is what you will have to figure out in this game. How will you use the city budget to help or hurt the progression of the greenhouse effect? Every choice has a consequence. If you can make it to the end of your term without making things worse, you win! The Mayor is part of the Greenhouse Effect learning objective.

Natural Resources – Estimated Duration: 10 minutes

Where do we find natural resources, and how are they used? To learn, click on a continent and discover the renewable and nonrenewable natural resources found at that location. Decide which resources you would like to build so you can maximize the production of energy while keeping costs low. Each time you play, experiment with new ways of building resources and spending your money differently to reach your goal. Part of the Natural Resources learning objective.

Ocean Fun – Estimated Duration: 17 minutes

Ocean Fun players will take a journey all over the world and learn about the ocean’s different characteristics. There are different mini-games that you will have to play to get to different learning modules in the game.

Battle of Wits – Water Forge – Estimated Duration: 15 minutes

Take on the monsters as you battle them with your wits! In this game, you will battle monsters using your knowledge of the water cycle and weather patterns.
