The Radix Endeavor is a massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) for STEM learning (science, technology, engineering and math) in middle and high school. A MMOG is a 2- or 3-D graphical, simulated world played online where individuals take on a digital character, or avatar, that they use to represent themselves in this virtual space. They can interact with the designed environment in which activities take place, and also with other individuals' avatars or non-player avatars that are part of the narrative.
Current version of the game covers a variety of topics in middle and high school curriculum. It is designed to align with the Common Core standards in mathematics and Next Generation Science Standards for high school students. In addition, we placed articular emphasis on including opportunities for students to develop key math practices and 21st century skills.
Biology topics: Genetics, Ecosystems, Evolution, Human Body Systems
Mathematics topics: Algebra, Geometry, Statistics
Teachers can use the quests as formative assessments of students’ content knowledge. Once teachers log in with an approved account, they have access to a “Teacher Dashboard” that gives them access to additional tools to assign game content, track participation and performance at both the students' individual and class level. The goal is to help teachers monitor student progress and tailor their lessons to students’ needs.
