Eco For Classrooms

Connect your students with classrooms all over the world, where they must solve global-challenges together, inside a scientific ecosystem simulation.

Our Vision

We believe that video games hold incredible power for inspiring students to become lifelong learners, and collaborators. Our game Eco aims to provide that to groups of students, pushing the boundaries of educational experiences.

A Simulated World

Every Eco world runs online in the cloud 24/7, simulating a vast landscape full of plants and animals, living out their lives in a sophisticated ecosystem and climate simulation. Together, your students must make a home in this world, taking natural resources from an environment affected by everything they do.

Students Save The World

Students will need to develop technology to shoot an incoming meteor off course. However, with all the resources coming from the natural environment, students can destroy the ecosystem before the meteor event hits. The world is theirs to save or lose in Eco, thus providing a strong social relevance to their studies, an answer to ‘why do I need to learn this’ in a world they come to care about.

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.

Awards and Recognition

We’ve been funded by both the National Science Foundation and Department of Education’, and played by more than 250,000 game players on Steam

The game ECO gave a group of my students the opportunity to not just learn about the impact of human activity on the environment, but to experience them firsthand via a medium that is part of their everyday life. It is a way to implement the topic not only in school but also private and social discussions between students, parents, teachers and all other comitted members of society.
