Abstract

This project, sponsored by EduVentures and the National Museum of Namibia, sought to increase Namibian secondary students' awareness of biodiversity by creating and deploying a computer game called WebExpedition. We received input from teachers and students to optimize the game's usefulness and effectiveness, and performed trial runs with Namibian students. The game teaches students about scientific classification of organisms, and allows students to connect animals and plants to their habitats in Namibia.
