An international online competition to stimulate student’s interest on ecological issues


Abstract


A serious game on ecological matter and Earth sciences is one of the products of ENVRIplus project. ENVRIplus is a cluster of Research Infrastructures (RIs) for Environmental and Earth System sciences aiming at improving Earth observation monitoring systems and strategies. Here we present the ongoing activities of the training action, which has a serious game and a competition as main final products. The serious game, named Research Game, is direct to students of intermediate and high schools. Students, acting as researchers, have to apply the scientific experimental method in a practical work about topics of Ecology and Earth Sciences, and finally will play the serious game during a final European competition.
