Immersed Games helps teachers deliver hands-on, next generation science learning – with a video game! The game, Tyto Online, builds science and engineering skills with student experiences like solving an invasive species problem, building ecosystems, and breeding dragons. Teachers assign standards-aligned content and receive student assessments based on gameplay.
LT We like to take a break from making video games by playing video games (and board and card games).
LT Hearing stories from the people who play our games - like the parent who emailed to let us know her 9-year olds were making Punnett Squares of their stuffed animals, or the YouTuber who shared about conservation efforts for the animals in our game.
LT We’re looking forward to relocating to a state that uses the Next Generation Science Standards, and working with progressive Buffalo schools with a diverse population of students to help us shape a product that works well for students with a broad spectrum of backgrounds and strengths.
