This project team developed a prototype of the Planet First Energy Worlds, a 3D virtual environment focused on energy-related topics that address mathematics and science standards for 6th grade. The curricula embedded within the intervention focuses on inquiry scenarios and leverages disciplinary content to address different situations using a video game format immersed in 3-D technology. The intervention will include teacher professional development and support. Phase I research demonstrated that students and teachers were engaged by the concept.
