Abstract

Alligator, a three-dimensional Civil War submarine simulator, is designed to teach middle and high school students the basic concepts of naval navigation and tactics. Developed for the Navy and Marine Living History Association, the project attempts to realistically portray the hardships and technological challenges of piloting the Union Navy's first submarine. Students will have to plan attack and escape routes, compensate for tides and currents, and execute their plan in a full three-dimensional environment.
