Mission: Mars

Blast off to the Red Planet with Mission: Mars, a Roblox survival experience we created in partnership with the Museum of Science. This immersive multiplayer game challenges players to use the Engineering Design Process (EDP) as they navigate the unforgiving Martian terrain. By crafting tools and equipment to improve their survival capabilities, players develop crucial STEM skills as they uncover the mysteries of Mars. With its captivating storyline and emphasis on problem-solving, Mission: Mars is the ideal way to launch into a summer filled with learning!

Robot Champions

In Robot Champions, your child can unleash their creativity and sharpen their engineering know-how! We designed this imaginative sandbox Roblox experience alongside the competitive robotics experts at FIRST®. The game allows players to construct and control their own robots, iterating on their designs to improve performance in thrilling multiplayer matches inspired by team sports. As they build and refine their robotic creations, players will develop STEM skills along with future-facing abilities such as problem-solving and critical thinking, all while experiencing the excitement of teamwork and friendly competition. Design, compete, and collaborate with friends in Robot Champions!

Pathogen Patrol

Pathogen Patrol is our friends at Project Lead The Way’s debut learning experience on Roblox! In the game, players embark on a microscopic journey and join the battle against infectious invaders. In each mission, players are transported into the body of an ill patient, discovering the intricacies of the human immune system by assuming the roles of various white blood cell types. By collaborating with other players to protect the host’s health, your child isn’t just gaming with their peers, but gaining valuable insight into the body’s inner workings.

That’s Your Right!

If your child isn’t on Roblox or prefers a multiplayer game accessible in any browser, have them try out That’s Your Right!. This engaging card game tests players’ knowledge of the Bill of Rights. Created to seamlessly complement Annenberg Classroom’s comprehensive Constitution curriculum, the game combines Hearthstone-inspired mechanics with a vivid, artistic aesthetic to deliver an entertaining and educational experience. Whether playing alone or with friends, your child will gain a deeper understanding of their fundamental rights and freedoms as they devise strategies to secure victory!

This summer, encourage your child to step away from solitary screen time and harness the potential of multiplayer learning games!
