Players are briefed about rash of local health problems that are linked to the environment. They are also provided with background information and budget. Their mission is to reach the source of pollution, that is causing the health problems, by drilling sampling wells and ultimately re-mediate with pumping wells. By using their PDA’s players navigate themselves around the campus, receive and send information to, by other players. Finally, they have to form teams, negotiate and represent differents interests (EpA, industries etc).
