A MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE GAME (MMOG) with SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING and MATHEMATICS (STEM) TOPICS FOR MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL CURRICULUM.
The Radix Endeavor will be unavailable after February, 2020
Thanks for your interest in The Radix Endeavor! Radix means a lot to us as a learning game and research project. After more than 6 years, we no longer have the capacity to maintain the game or keep it alive in a technology outside of Flash. Until the end of February, 2020, the site will still be up, but will not be supported, and at the end of the year the game will be taken down. We apologize for anyone who is still enjoying it, and we thank you for coming along with us on this endeavor.
- The Radix Team (and The Shumberts)
MIT's Education Arcade and Scheller Teacher Education Program received a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop an immersive virtual learning experience supporting high school math and biology instruction. Working collaboratively with teachers, we have created The Radix Endeavor, a multi-player online game set on the Island of Ysola.
What is it?
The Radix Endeavor is a massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) for STEM learning (science, technology, engineering and math) in middle and high school. A MMOG is a a 2- or 3-D graphical, simulated world played online where individuals take on a digital character, or avatar, that they use to represent themselves in this virtual space. They can interact with the designed environment in which activities take place, and also with other individuals' avatars or non-player avatars that are part of the narrative.
