The Guana Tolomato Matanzas, Mission-Aransas, and Delaware Reserves will partner with the University of Delaware to produce gesture controlled, educational computer games that promote interactive, free-choice learning opportunities within the National Estuarine Research Reserve System. The experiential games will be designed for use on interactive screens that will be available for public use in each Reserve’s exhibit hall. Participants will be able to freely navigate through different experiences that will provide them with a better understanding that the estuary is a dynamic place upon which plants, animals, and people depend and everyone plays a part in shaping the past and protecting the future. Development of the educational games will be completed by University of Delaware undergraduate students. This supports the education mission of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, in its effort to develop a highly skilled future workforce that pursues science, technology, engineering, and/or math-related careers. To increase and demonstrate transferability of this project to other Reserves, the underlying framework and information driving game play will remain similar among all three Reserves. Ultimately, this project will provide our communities with relevant, accessible science while providing civic-minded solutions and resources encouraging participants to take conservation-based action, whether on the individual, family, community, or regional scale that promote ecosystem resiliency.
