It helps students understand watersheds, the relationship between land use, water quality and communities. Student teams apply tools to decrease water pollution while balancing financial resources. The game emphasizes collaboration and cooperative decision-making, persuasive argument, teamwork, and leadership skills along with science and math. The classroom version is appropriate for 5-12th grade.
