Details

Hydrotopia is an educational game that gives participants the opportunity to take the role of decision-makers balancing the sometimes conflicting needs of disparate stakeholders.  Each team of players assumes the management of a virtual town located along the continuum of a large river.  Players will be tasked with developing the economy of their towns, providing their towns with clean drinking water, voting on important environmental regulation and commissioning scientific studies to gain additional information.  All teams will also have a unique goal for the game, meaning that each team will effectively represent a different group of stakeholders.  As the game progresses, the choices the teams make individually and collectively will expand or curtail their options in the future.  Their choices may also initiate unanticipated negative consequences that could jeopardize their long-term goals or the goals of other groups.  All challenges and parameters will be rooted in real-world environmental issues that all students and citizens should be well aware of, while some of the real-world complexity will be limited in order to streamline game play.
