Adaptation by natural selection

This educational tool allows exploring the concepts related to evolution, adaptation, diversity, among others through a simulator that can be used in both formal and non-formal education contexts. The ADAPT tool! would be an educative resource in the format of an entertainment app. This tool will also incorporate the evaluation instrument making it easy to be used by educators to measure the impacts of this and other educational approaches in both formal and non-formal education contexts. This resource tackles educational and communication goals and offers valuable information about the educational impact and evolution learning outcomes, interactive educational resources based on scientific concepts, and the potential of gaming collaborative development to increase science literacy. The scenarios, and situations of this game, are inspired in rural locations and in daily life experiences, with Drosophila (fruit flies) as the main characters, a well-known and studied model organism to understand evolution and adaptation to the environment.
