This interactive web site, aimed at students aged 11-14, is a virtual island where users earn money, build and decorate homes, and design their faces while learning science, math, business, and writing skills. Users earn money by successfully completing problem-based, interactive, open-ended activities, and then use their earnings to purchase and decorate a house and gain access to other luxuries. Users chat with each other via the face they have selected and paid for. The web site includes a messaging system, bulletin area, and a newsletter. This resource is appropriate for all users, but particularly for girls and women, because it involves teamwork and communication skills and offers hands-on activities that produce a tangible result or product; it links STEM to other topics of interest such as arts and humanities, and uses STEM to solve real-world problems.
