Innovation: Education

Best. Game launch. Ever.

lbotteFollowing up on our intro to ARIS with geometry last Friday, this morning the 6th graders from Edmunds Middle School spent some time at the Echo Lake Aquarium and Science Center working through “Frogworld”, a demo ARIS game that made use of items at the Echo Center. After they played the game, they spent some time with the rest of the (non-frog) exhibits, collecting ideas for items they could incorporate into their own games.

We’re back at it tomorrow at Echo with another class of 6th graders. More news as it develops.
