The Mission HydroSci project is developing a video game for middle school science education. The game will help students learn key lessons about water systems, as well as develop their competency to engage in scientific argumentation.
Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, MHS will create a model for the integration of curriculum objectives, fun and engaging activities, visually rich learning environments for storylines, analytics, and teacher support. Field tests using randomized controlled trials in 2018 will test the effectiveness of the MHS approach.
