These are the scientific themes that my students are developing for their video game projects. It’s no surprise that the Layers of the Earth is top choice, since the symbolic use of “levels” in the gaming platform transforms nicely into the “layers” of the Earth. They had to choose an idea from their Geology unit, and they will be working in specific scientific vocabulary into their game, along with a “story frame.” Many are now deep in their game development, even though we just started talking about storyboarding yesterday. But who am I to hold back the wave of interest and creativity?
