Students will develop an understanding of Mesopotamia (located in what is now modern Iraq) with Discover Babylon, a FREE, DOWNLOADABLE game that brings alive Mesopotamia’s diverse contributions in writing, mathematics, literature and law. The game is an outgrowth of a joint project of the Federation of American Scientists Learning Technologies Project, UCLA’s Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative, Escape Hatch Entertainment and the Walters Art Museum. Targeted at ages 8-14, Discover Babylon uses video-gaming strategies and realistic digital environments to engage the learner in challenges and mysteries that can only be solved by developing an understanding of Mesopotamian society, business practices and trade.
