Each of the labs are designed to correspond with content in the By Design textbook curriculum.  The interactive labs are designed to show students options that are not usually practical in a classroom lab environment.

As we designed each lab, we used the following process.

  • Identify the topic
  • Engage subject matter experts to determine the learning objective
  • Engage learning scientist, educators and subject matter experts to determine an appropriate learning experience
    • Determine whether this is real world or virtual lab project
    • Scan the environment for pre-existing resources
  • Engage game designers and developers to design the learning experience as a compelling online gaming experience
  • Pilot test
  • Deploy
