Black Cloud was an environmental studies game that mixed the physical with the virtual to engage high school students in Los Angeles. Teams role-played as either real estate developers or environmentalists using actual air quality sensors hidden through the city to monitor neighborhood pollution. Their goal s to select good sites for either additional development or conservation. Combining scientific data with human experiences, students collaborate, share and analyze their findings, including working cross-culturally between cities.
