Earth Science Comes To Life With Video Game In The Classroom

Although From Dust isn’t out on XBox Live just yet, a video I recently saw of how the game works seems like it’d be a shoe-in to use in an earth science classroom.

This “God Game” (where the player is able to create an entire world) is an amazing example of how a science teacher could engage students in how land forms, why volcanoes and lava are important, the relationship between erosion and vegetation, and much, much more.

Who said video games weren’t educational?
