Water Bears EDU is a 3D puzzle game that gives students hands-on experience with Systems Thinking concepts.

Each puzzle starts with a set of water bears that are sad, dehydrated, and desperately in need of some water! Players use pipes, along with spatial reasoning, color mixing, and systems thinking skills, to redirect the water until all of the water bears are hydrated and happy.

Water Bears EDU was built in collaboration with the Creativity Labs at Indiana University and is based on a prototype funded by the MacArthur Foundation. The game comes with real-time reports, a teacher’s guide, and sample lesson plans that can easily compliment or supplement your existing curriculum. These instructional resources help make learning visible, and are available on glasslabgames.org!
