CRISPR-VR: Explore Sickle Cell and Genome Editing - Innovative Genomics Institute (IGI) Dynamoid. Immune Defense by MelanieAnns. Immune Defense is a strategy game about molecular immunology for big kids and grown ups (ages 10+).

Immune Defense by MelanieAnns

Players use various white blood cells to fight off real pathogens, using real surface proteins and signaling molecules. This is science games like science games should be. This is what scientists dream about, not what you memorize in Bio 101. I wanted the player to feel confident at all times and to be engaged in the feeling of exploration. The beginning levels accomplish this well, they draw players in, giving players the opportunity use the powerful Neutrophil cells to eat bacteria. The cells are accurate in size and look like they would under a light microscope in a classroom. Credits.Credits.Credits.Credits.Credits.Credits.Credits.Credits.

Tyto Online for Schools: BETA - Tyto Online. Today we’re excited to be able to announce that we have launched a new set of teacher tools for a new version we’re calling Tyto Online for Schools.

Tyto Online for Schools: BETA - Tyto Online

Try the beta now! The new for Schools teacher tools include three main sections: Explore & Plan, Track Progress, and Manage Classes. Our goal is for teachers to be able to seamlessly use Tyto Online across their entire school year, aligning with each unit of content. Teachers can assign quests for quick 15-20 minute applied problem solving as students learn science, or have the kids dig into the sandboxes where they’ll learn through experimentation and can be used as a basis for motivated classroom discussion about these topics.

For example, most players begin the ecosystem sandbox by placing too many apex predators at once, which leads to an ecosystem collapse as the predators quickly eat all of the prey animals and then starve. Explore & Plan This is my personal favorite right now. Track Progress Manage Classes What’s next? Getting Access. Tyto Ecology on Steam. About This Game In Tyto Ecology, you have the power to create your own biodome and fill it with life!

Tyto Ecology on Steam

Start with an empty biodome as your canvas, then create a rich, diverse ecosystem by balancing producers, consumers, and decomposers. You’re in control as you work to create a functioning ecosystem from the ground up, problem solving to learn life science principles. Tyto Ecology Review for Teachers. Tyto Ecology is an ecology simulation game where students build their own biodomes filled with plants, animals, and fungi in an effort to balance each ecosystem.

Tyto Ecology Review for Teachers

The base game comes with three biomes to choose from: Mojave Desert, the Great Plains, and the Amazon Rainforest. Expansions are also available for the Himalayan Forest, Alaskan Tundra, and Cretaceous Mongolia (which includes dinosaurs). As students add life to their biodomes, they must balance producers, consumers, and decomposers in their own built-from-scratch ecosystem. If the balance is off, plants or animals will die.
