You can tell a lot about the quality of water in creeks and rivers just by looking at the critters that live in them. Some call these benthic macroinvertebrates bioindicators. The District partnered with Pixel Profundo to develop an interactive, augmented reality card game that helps you get to know these important critters, so the next time you’re in a creek… you can check on the water quality yourself!
The augmented reality game is in the review phase, but soon you’ll be able to print the pdf with the cards and download the app from the Apple Store or Google Play. Teachers and educators will be able to request a coupon to download the full set for free. Request an educator code by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
