Welcome to the game! Here are all the important details:
On the following pages watch some videos created by scientists who are excited to share their fields and expertise with you. Before you start:
If you are using a school supplied device to play this game (i.e. a Chromebook), you may run into difficulties with the video portion due to security features on that device. We suggest you play the game on a personal device for this reason. However, if only a school supplied device is available and you experience difficulties, we have provided alternate Tracks to play with links at the bottom of each Track's main video page.
Make sure you have a game sheet and a pen or pencil handy (we recommend a pencil in case you make an error). You can download one at the bottom of this page. If you don't have a printer or you'd like to go paperless, fill in the blanks on the downloaded game sheet (this option requires software capable of reading a PDF file). If you don't have either, copy the game sheet onto a blank piece of paper by making the same number of letter boxes for each video and circling the ones you'll need for the jumble (the unshaded squares on the game sheet).
Watch the following videos carefully. Each mentor will ask a question, either in their video or under their video, that you will need to answer in order to move onto the next video. Every answer will be a one word answer between 5 and 8 letters long.
Once you have finished watching a video, enter the answer to the question in the clue box provided below the video and click the "Go" button. If your answer is correct, you will automatically move on to the next video. If your answer is incorrect, you will be provided with hints to help you get to the right answer. Be sure to also record the correct answer on your game sheet on the line matching that video.
Continue this process for all of the videos on your Track. (There may be 4 or 5 videos).
Once you have watched all videos in a Track and have all the answer lines on your game sheet filled out, you'll advance to the Jumble page. Unscramble the letters in the unshaded (white) squares on your game sheet to answer the riddle. Enter the answer to the riddle in the answer box and click the "Go" button. If your answer is correct, you will be brought back this page. If your answer is incorrect, you will be provided with hints to help you get to the right answer.
