Game way to learn

13th July 2007 at 01:00
THE GOVERNMENT has launched a new online game to help GCSE pupils understand the threat of climate change.

Operation: Climate Control is billed as an innovative and exciting multi player game. The independent games developers Red Redemption designed it to educate 15- and 16-year-olds about the impact of climate policy and help stimulate a change in attitudes.

Gobion Rowlands, the managing director, said: "The threat that climate change poses to us all can hardly be understated and it is crucial that young people understand the problem and are enthused to help find solutions.

"We realised there are a very limited set of resources for school kids that deal with climate change in a way that teachers can build it into their lesson plans. Operation: Climate Control builds on our experiences and feedback from the Climate Challenge game to give children some difficult scenarios to deal with in a fun way."
