New iPhone Game Uses Rubber Ducky To Educate About Oil Spill

The oil disaster in the gulf is a teachable moment. Not just for the country but your classroom. What better way to connect with students than through a new iPhone game? The free app just hit the App Store today and is educational as well as fun.

From the same developers who created a couple of tic tac toe games, and lolspeak dictionaries, the Duck vs BP app makes use of the accelerometer’s tilt-controls, sending the duck around the polluted waters. The aim is to block up all the pipes spilling the oil, and to dodge oil bubbles. Interspersed in all the fun are clever facts about the environment, making it a game suitable for your students too. Want to give the game a whirl? Download it from the app store here.
