Exploring an island on fantasy planet Omosa — a 3D intelligent virtual reality world—where students are scientists with the Interplanetary Environmental Investigation Agency (IEIA). They are sent to help the Omosans understand why the animals they hunt are dying out. Students collect data like real biologists, run computer experiments to make their own discoveries, and then to report their findings to the Chief Scientist of the IEIA as well as their classmates and teacher.
