Abstract

In this paper we introduce our newly developed mobile augmented reality game that engages students in investigating a socioscientific issue (SSI) to decide on remedies for a campus site on which part of the soil was hypothetically polluted by a nuclear accident. The game allows students to collect virtual radiation data and interview virtual characters on the campus. The results indicate that the students gained knowledge and perceived the SSI as not that complex after learning with the AR game.
