'WolfQuest': An Educational Game About Survival

WolfQuest

Every once in a while, a computer game pops up that’s actually educational for kids. WolfQuest is one of those rare finds. Created by the Minnesota Zoo with a grant from the National Science Foundation, it has been receiving some warm reception from gamers of all ages. The big bonus of ‘WolfQuest’ is that it’s a free download.

The purpose of the game is to learn how wolves hunt, survive and defend their territories. By the end of the game, you must find a mate and establish a wolf pack of your own. I can say that I’ve never heard of a game like this, so it’s definitely worth checking out. The first episode of WolfQuest, “Amethyst Mountain.” was released on Dec. 20 and downloaded over 13,500 times within a few days. The free download can be found at http://www.wolfquest.org.

The Minnesota Zoo developed “WolfQuest” with Eduweb, an educational software developer in St. Paul, on a $508,253 National Science Foundation grant. Other partners include the National Zoo in Washington, the Phoenix Zoo, Yellowstone and the International Wolf Center in Ely.
