Free Educational Games:Science Education:Rigglefish Award Winner Games

RiggleFish, a Gold Medal Winner at the Serious Play Conference, held August 23 – 25, 2011 at the DigiPen Institute of Technology in Redmond, is a computer-based educational game teaches players about scientific inquiry and genetics.

RiggleFish,finalist for a prestigious award, is developed by UL Lafayette’s Center for Innovative Learning and Assessment Technologies and Texas A&M .The game is a finalist in the 2011 Adobe Design Achievement Awards competition in the Innovation in Interactive Media in Education category.

In RiggleFish, players take on the role of Dr. Waters, a geneticist tasked by the government to develop a source for Omega X. This fatty acid can be used as a protectant against a deadly bioweapon.

RiggleFish, a recently discovered fish species, is rich in Omega X. Players work in a top-secret underwater research laboratory to breed a type of RiggleFish that produces Omega X and can be farmed to provide a source for the needed protectant.

To accomplish this task, students must use observation and testing skills to breed these fish to obtain the target RiggleFish.

There are three levels of the game, each appropriate for different grade levels. Level 1 matches the National Science Education standards for middle school. Level 2 is for high school biology classes and Level 3 is the most challenging and is geared toward advanced high school learners.
