Game Balancing Global Water Resources

Aquation: The Freshwater Access Game is a free iOS, Android, and web game offered by the Smithsonian Science Education Center. Designed for students in upper elementary or middle school, the game teaches how clean water is distributed and what can be done to balance global water resources. In the game, students select a region to explore its current water supplies. Based on the information provided, students then take action by building desalination plants, conducting further research to bring water where it is most needed, reacting to national events, and attempting to move water between regions. Monsoons, dry spells, disease, and even lawn sprinklers can help or hinder their progress. Students will need to manage their region’s wealth and water carefully to solve the world’s water crisis. The game has valuable lessons about the global distribution of freshwater resources and the challenges that face the regions with less water than others. Cost: Free
