Algae City is an interactive and educational game that is currently being developed in the Unity Game Engine. It is designed towards educating middle school students, from 5th to 8th grade, about the possible implementations of algae as a replacement sustainable resource and an environmentally-friendly solution to many of the world's pollution, energy, and other existing and potential problems. This game is also meant to provide students with a more integral hands-on learning experience to replace the dull classroom lectures. The detailed game modules are discussed in this paper, together with the design strategies that seamlessly integrate the learning content with the standard curriculum and bring a balance of learning and fun in Algae City to promote STEM education.
