GlassLab, a part of the Institute of Play, is dedicated to helping create games that are both financially successful and help educate players regarding important social, scientific, and practical issues in today's world. Their latest effort with EA has resulted in SimCityEDU: Pollution Challenge!, which challenges students to minimize pollution while juggling employment rates and citizen satisfaction while also providing lesson plans and resources for teachers to fit the program into their curriculum. 

 

Jessica Lindl, General Manager of GlassLab, summed up the project, saying, “Taking the essential elements of games, we’ve created an educational tool that will keep students excited and engaged in real-world problem solving, while providing teachers with actionable reports aligned to standards.”
