"MdBio Foundation, a private charitable organization for promoting science learning and workforce development, is building an online video game for high school students. They plan to build a half-dozen games that can reach millions of students across the state and the country." (Baltimore Sun)
"In the game, students can create, nurture and guide fictional creatures living in a swampland, learning about heredity, genetics and genome manipulation. The game is intended to bolster and prepare students for in-class learning." (Baltimore Sun).
"For nearly a decade, the MdBio Foundation has promoted science education with the MdBioLab, a sophisticated laboratory built on a tractor-trailer that travels to schools around Maryland. The mobile lab has reached about 100,000 students since 2003. But a science-based online video game has the potential to be used by many of the 46 million children who play video games, Colvin said."
