Abstract

The project was to create a game to teach climate change to 9-14 year-olds for the FIRST Lego League Challenge. We designed a card and computer game with 80 unique cards with original graphics and content. We performed extensive play testing with over 40 subjects to guide multiple revisions of the game play and rules. We produced a professional level card and computer game that presents climate change from multiple points of view and is enjoyable and accessible to all ages.
