Agrinautica

Terraform planets by adding gorgeous plants, animals, fungi and minerals, each representing a unique mathematical expression.

Agrinautica is designed for 4th and 5th graders learning mathematical expression-building and order of operations, important pre-algebra skills.


This version of the game is a beta release (not the final release). It is being made available now so that players can experience the game sooner. This beta release may still have bugs. If you notice a bug, please report it to mmedia@nmsu.edu. Our team continues to work at making the game more accessible. Teacher resources will be released at a later date.
