In this age of constant discovery, we need scientifically literate citizens who can meet the world’s environmental, political, and economic challenges. To increase scientific literacy, EDC draws upon inquiry-based approaches that deepen understanding of science concepts and build critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Within schools—as well as beyond schools in informal settings, the policy arena, adult education, higher education, and the research community—we advance new ways to enhance science learning and close achievement gaps in science.
Environmental Detectives was the first AR game created by the MIT TEP. It was targeted at high school and university students. In this game students play the role of environmental engineers who are presented with the following scenario at the beginning of the simulation: During the construction of the underground garage of the new Stata Center (a big and controversial construction project) significant amounts of water are pumped up from the ground in order to lower the groundwater table so that the garage can be constructed in a dry environment.
