The Science Behind Spore


I love to play computer games, and for years now I’ve been eagerly anticipating Spore, the next big game by Will Wright, the creator of The Sims. Recently, new videos about the game were released, including a great video on the science behind Spore. It includes evolutionary science beginning with single celled organisms and growing into creatures that you design; sociology as species grow from small tribal groups to large societies; and astronomy, planetary and space science as your beings explore the universe beyond their planet. I think it would be a great game to encourage kids to play to show how science can be fun!
