Develop an online video game with the aim of exploring new ways for people and trees to coexist in tropical forests.
Working in teams, develop and create an online video game with the aim of exploring new ways for people and trees to coexist in tropical forests. The video game should explore how people produce food on the frontiers of tropical forests, to the "ecosystem services" of birds and the benefits they provide. Use Kodu game maker, Microsoft's free video game software, to create the video game. Use the Kodu Guide to help you. Post your game to the Shout 4 - Sustain folder. Reach out to other schools in the Shout Global Classroom and organize a real-time virtual conference.
