Welcome to the DMS River City Project!

River city is an on-line virtual community created by Harvard University to help students teach themselves the scientific method. In the game, students use the same methods that actual scientists would to solve a similar, real life problem. For more information on River City, click here.

Our students have discovered that there are more than a few health problems in River City. From tuberculosis and sewage running into the river to mosquitos spreading diseases, River City needs our twenty-first century help to make their town healthy again.
Our grade 7 students have agreed to help. Working in teams of four, students have been exploring and investigating River City to discover the source of these problems...and learn about the scientific method at the same time.
