Monitoring game

Experience the difficulties of monitoring many variables at once

Welcome to the Monitoring game!

In this game, you experience the difficulties of gathering information about many variables at once, just as satellites must do to monitor the climate. This game illustrates why there are so many agencies, satellites and sensors working together to understand how our planet is changing.

This game is for eight people or more and you will need only a timer or stopwatch to play.

You can find more information about this theme in the Climate from Space web application story Taking the pulse of the planet.

The game also supports activities in the Taking the pulse of the planet education resource packs for students aged 11–14 and 14–16.
