The River City Project (A Multi-User Virtual Environment for Learning Scientific Inquiry and 21st Century Skills)

Introducing River City (from Harvard University).

Welcome to River City!
Welcome to the River City Project. With funding from the National Science Foundation, we have developed an interactive computer simulation for middle grades science students to learn disease transmission and scientific method. River City has the look and feel of a videogame but contains content developed from National Science Education Standards, National Educational Technology Standards, and 21st Century Skills.
