Hyporheic Board Game part of Integrate:Workshops:Engineering, Sustainability, and the Geosciences:Activities
In this activity, students will learn about hyporhiec exchange and the nitrogen cycle, while playing a fun and interactive board game. In the game, players move through surface water collecting nitrogen compounds. Next they travel on hyporheic paths where players can convert the compounds they collected using oxic and anoxic equations. The player to first collect six nitrogen gas victory points wins the game. There are cards that are drawn at specific surface water locations, which cause various game actions and contain educational content.
