THE EUROPEAN SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH GAME FOR SCHOOLS

                                       

Today I am writing to invite you to take part in an on-line Research Game that will allow  you tyo test your students' skills in the field of Research and Biodiversity and  participate in the European final on-line competition  and interact with students from abroad. 

Challenge your students' in their understanding of Scientific Research and Biodiversity with the European Scientific Research Game, an online game for students from the age of 10 years.

The game has two phases and schools can decide to participate in one of both phases:
-  Phase 1. Carry out a research project' - students will complete a scientific research in their schools and report online - open until the April 5 2014.
-   Phase 2. An online competition - the final step of the project, teams
challenge each other to be the best in playing an online video game. April 29th 2014.

You can see much more about the game here

ABOUT THE PROJECT:

The Research Game project has been funded with support from the European Commission. It  will motivate secondary school students by replicating the excitement of scientific research. The Project has created an Internet-based game to develop an understanding of research work and to teach best practices.

In the game students will collaborate internationally across Europe, to build hypotheses, research and test the validity of their hypothesis and finalise a theory based on their findings. Students will be expected to share their research findings with other groups.

Your students will learn in a fun and engaging way the logical thinking and deductive reasoning typical of the Scientific Method, core skills not only required for science, but in all their futures.
