Ninth graders in Lewiston, ID, are being taught about earth science through the use of an interdisciplinary video game developed by Polymorphic Games, an evolutionary video game studio at the University of Idaho (U of I).
U of I biological sciences professor Barrie Robinson and computer science professor Terence Soule, created Polymorphic Games' latest interdisciplinary video game, Project Hastur, with input from teams of undergraduate students in diverse degree programs.
Said Soule, "The idea is that players who want to do well and beat the game need to understand how the game works in an evolutionary context. "So the idea is that the players are motivated to understand evolution in order to win."
