STEM Skills For Society
We’ve created Eco as a multiplayer, online world where students must solve global challenges or risk virtual destruction. In order to build a thriving society and prevent catastrophe, they’ll need to obtain and apply STEM skills, using their understanding of science, statistics, civics, economics, ecology and more. They’ll collaborate to build governments (electing leaders, passing laws, levying taxes) and develop economies (harvesting, processing, trading, and transporting natural resources).
Next Generation of Learners
Our future needs inspired, life-long learners, capable of navigating complex societal issues, that require a deep understanding of scientific principles, all while achieving action within an environment of conflicting opinions. Eco asks that of students today, placing them in a simulation where the knowledge they’re learning and their ability to come to agreements with their peers has world-saving importance.
