“My classes tried out Mission HydroSci for a week in the fall.  I used the video game as I would any other resource. I prepped students with info; so they would have some of the prior knowledge needed for the game, I paused periodically to make sure they remembered the purpose of each day, and I concluded by reviewing over concepts that they should have been learning.  My students enjoyed the game and the puzzles within the game.  I found that I had new student leaders emerge during game play.  Many of my gamers were able to take on a leadership role, and it was awesome!  It was definitely worth our time to play this educational game.
