WHY DID WE DEVELOP IBIOME SERIES?

The complex ecosystems that make up our planet’s water systems host some of nature’s most fragile organisms and species. We want kids to understand the delicate balance in our ecosystems and the sobering role we as humans play in the extinction of species and the destruction of nature’s habitats.

Biodiversity can be challenging to teach from the inside of a classroom and field trips aren't always possible. But with educational games like iBiome-Wetland: School Edition and iBiome-Ocean: School Edition, we can create safe interactive environments where students can explore, create and test the balance and composition of their own virtual ecosystem.
