img_1202-1

This year the Skyline Interns will be helping create an environmental learning game; the current working title is City Danger. The interns have been learning about environmental conditions and problems in cities; including, heat, air quality, and water management. Their educational game incorporates all these conditions to teach about how to manage them in a city.

The interns will be responsible putting their own twist on the game which was developed by EarthTeam staff member Jesse Brown. The Interns will make the game their own, by refining the rules, designing the board and pieces, and adding anything else they deem necessary.

The goal is to create a downloadable tool kit for teachers to implement the game in their own classrooms.
