Immersive Environments

Cyber-Share is collaborating with the Smithsonian Latino Center [http://latino.si.edu/] to develop virtual role-playing games for middle school students that explore culturally-relevant environmental concepts. We are leveraging prior work by the Latino Center on the Mi Tierra, Mi Mundo game [LVMWatershed_flyer_print.pdf] developed for students living near the Chesapeake Bay. View a short video of the game here [video]. Cyber-Share is developing an analogous game that targets the Rio Grande Watershed at the broad scale while also focusing on environmental issues in and around the El Paso region. Stay tuned for updates.
